WASHINGTON – Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) formally honored Fannin County resident, Sandy Barber, on Nov. 14 as the 2019 Angels in Adoption nominee for the 4th District of Texas. Barber was nominated for her work as executive director of the Fannin County Children’s Center, which is focused on promoting safety and improving the lives of abused and neglected children.
“I was very pleased to nominate Sandy Barber as this year’s Angels in Adoption nominee for the 4th District of Texas. She’s done amazing work on behalf of abused and neglected children in Fannin County, and it’s important to recognize the positive impact she is making in our community,” Ratcliffe said.
The Angels in Adoption program provides an annual opportunity for U.S. Representatives to honor families in their home district who change lives through dedication to adoption or foster care.
Barber was invited to Washington to attend an annual awards ceremony for Angels in Adoption nominees from across the country. While in the nation’s capital, she visited Ratcliffe’s office, where he presented her with a certificate to recognize her nomination.
She also thanked Ratcliffe for his recent participation in Justice is Served, which raised record-breaking funds for the Fannin County Children’s Center, and for his work in Congress on behalf of children in need.
