Roger Toogood, retired Executive Director of the Children's Home Society of MN and former board member of Adoption Option, was selected to be one of 120 angels in adoption honored by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption (CCA) in a national ceremony in Washington D.C. on September 26, 2000.This ceremony continues a tradition that began last year when 50 Angels were recognized.Expanding on their commitment to children and families, the Freddie Mac Foundation is sponsoring the first annual "Angels in Adoption" banquet as part of the national recognition of the angels.CCA is a bicameral, non-partisan alliance of 150 Members of Congress dedicated to improving adoption policy and practice.The purpose of the CCA is to focus public attention on the advantages of adoption to all concerned – the child, the birth parents and the adoptive parents.

They are people like Roger and Marlys Toogood, who since 1959 have lived in three homes in a six-block area of Roseville.
Roger Toogood, 76, is retired executive director of the Children's Home Society of Minnesota.
In the 1990s, Toogood served on a city task force that looked into the future -- and guessed wrong. The group thought that as homeowners aged, they would vacate the city's 8,500 single-family homes for senior citizen housing and be replaced by young families with kids.
"What we didn't figure out is that a lot of the homes are single level and that if seniors wanted to stay, they could," Toogood said.
Toogood has seen it firsthand, often when a husband dies and his widow stops coming to church because she doesn't drive.

Roger Toogood, the retired executive director of the Children's Home Society of Minnesota, recalls the days when children's homes were commonplace.
"By 1955, almost all the orphanages had closed," Toogood said."And many of those that had been orphanages ... were turned into residential treatment centers.The kids being placed weren't orphans, but were kids who couldn't stay in their homes and needed help with emotional problems."
The reason: There was a growing conviction nationally that children belonged in homes, not large institutions.Many children who grew up in institutions were showing signs of lifelong psychological problems.There were stories of physical and sexual abuse and harsh discipline.
Toogood asked.Would the project receive such strong support?
And who's going to work in these places? asked Clarke Chambers, a social welfare historian and professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota.The Copeland proposal, for example, is based on a "cottage system" model of 100 years ago, he said.The ideal is to have nurturing parents in each cottage who act as role models to the kids, he said.But that hasn't always been the case.
