US Congressman Alan Lowenthal, serving California's 47th District, visited the office of Bal Jagat- Children's World Inc. to congratulate Hemlata Momaya for her 2016 Angels in Adoption recognition and to discuss current adoption legislation. Mausami and Hemlata Momaya shared our views on the US State Department's proposed new rules regulating intercountry adoption http://saveadoptions.org/ and renewal of the Adoption Tax Credit. (For more information on Lowenthal's Office, the New proposed legislation-RE: 81 FR 62321; 22 CFR 96; Document Number 2016-20968, or FAQs on the Tax Credit, please click the links in the dark text above).
Hemlata Momaya was the 2016 Recipient of the highly prestigious 2016 Angels in Adoption Award by the CCAI (Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute) in Washington, DC. To be honored, one must be nominated and seconded by your state Senator. On September 20, 2016, Hemlata Momaya received her certificate (from Alabama Senator) at the pin ceremony by US Congress. There were many US Senators in attendance.
We are extremely proud of Hemlata Momaya for her lifetime of service to orphan children and families in need around the world.
