U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) virtually congratulated Woodward residents Brady and Angela Bay and their family for receiving the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s “Angels in Adoption” award.
“I know the joys of adoption, making it even more special to congratulate the Bay family on being selected as a 2020 Angels in Adoption® Honoree. During these trying times when all you seem to hear is negativity in the news, the Bay family is a source of positivity and joy we all could benefit from. When Brady and Angela adopted little Sawyer from Ethiopia—a place near and dear to my heart—they made a decision that would grow their family and their hearts forever.
“The Bays are a wonderful example of how adoption can bless you and those around you. It was a joy to talk and pray together and they reminded me why I continue to fight in Congress to advance policy to help all children find a home with a loving family.”

The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute’s Angels in Adoption® Program honors a wide spectrum of individuals and organizations making extraordinary contributions in adoption, permanency and child welfare. Each year, the Angels in Adoption® awardees travel to Washington, D.C., to both celebrate their hard work and dedication to the issues and participate in special events designed to engage them in using their personal experience to effect change on behalf of children in need of families. This year, the Angels in Adoption® Program was virtual.
