Children Awaiting Parents is a local adoption agency that has brought countless families together.
With the help of CAP, Jeff Allen and his partner officially welcomed their son Charlie to their family in August of 2020. The agency worked closely with Allen throughout the process, and as Allen says, "they wanted it to work as badly as we did."
Allen and his partner began visits with Charlie in early 2019, and by July 2019 Charlie was moving in. A little over a year later (with some delays due to COVID), on August 19, 2020, Charlie's adoption was finalized.
With November being National Adoption Month, CAP is celebrating by holding it's Home, Heart, and Harmony gala this Friday, November 6. The gala will take place in-person at Comedy at the Carlson, and it will also be streamed online. There are a limited number of in-person tickets, which you can find by clicking here.
"The only downside to finalizing adoption was not working with [CAP] anymore," said Allen.
