I don’t know if this will work for readers without a Facebook account, but the National Council for Adoption has published an animoto review of the November 18, 2010 30th anniversary, Black Tie & Pearls gala at the Willard on it’s FB page.
I recognize Chuck Johnson, the NCFA staff, Michale Barone, Heidi Cox, Mary Landreiu and a couple other guests whose names escape me, but who are those beauty queens and why are they with NCFA?
I’m disappointed, but not surprised, that NCFA has suppressed certain activities that occured at the gala and that Bastardette and her crack team of undercover journos clandestinely taped and posted here.
The “beauty queens” were probabably associates of Shannon Devine. If you look on the the NCFA FB page, she is on one of their links (July 2010)
“NCFA supporter, Shannon Devine, crowned Mrs. International 2010; Wins NCFA One Year of Free PR Representation!”
Shannon’s a bastard beauty queen who lurves adoption.
OOPS. I meant Shannon Devine is an adopter.
It’s nice they felt the need to document the wealth and excess with professional photography. Oh, lovely.
Clearly the “winners” in adoption who have profitted financially. I’m sure inside trading and deals for “bargain” children were being made while they were sipping the kool-aid and eating their psychadelic shrooms.
