Last Thursday, a group of 30 undergraduate students from the University of Nebraska at Kearney’s Family Studies Department paid CCAI Headquarters a visit!  The group (dressed in their best!) took a tour of CCAI and spent the afternoon learning about internship opportunities at CCAI as well as career opportunities in the field of adoption.  CCAI Director of Adoptions, Judy Winger, and CCAI’s Domestic Program Coordinator, Sheila King, hosted the fantastic group and provided more information about adoption than their hearts could handle in hopes that these students will consider a career in adoption in the future!
