Dana Johnson and the International Adoption Clinic were honored November 17 at the North American Council On Adoptable Children (NACAC) ninth annual gala. The honor was given for their "efforts to improve the health of orphaned children throughout the world through excellence in clinical care, research, education and advocacy." 

NACAC, headquartered in St. Paul, MN, raises awareness about the need to adopt children from the foster care system and to provide continuing support to families who adopt children with special needs. Learn more about NACAC

November 17 was National Adoption Day in the U.S., where 104,000 are waiting to be adopted out of the foster care system.
