John Kennedy on Nov. 14. The Angels in Adoption program honors individuals, couples, families and organizations nationwide who have made an extraordinary contribution on behalf of children in need of a permanent home. Davis, who has more than 20 years of domestic and international experience working with birth parents, adoptive parents and adopted people, has directly helped place more than 100 children in homes.
