Davis Recognizes Champaign Angels in Adoption Nominee Ellyn Bullock
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) recently recognized Ellyn Bullock of Champaign, IL on being nominated to be an Angels in Adoption Honoree for 2019.
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Ellyn Bullock, a lawyer from Champaign, Illinois who specializes in adoption. She has been nominated to be an Angels in Adoption Honoree for the 2019 Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute.
Since 1999, Ellyn has finalized the adoptions of more than 1,800 children – more than half were in the Illinois foster care system and ultimately found permanent homes.
She has won the Catholic Charities Friend of Adoption Award and has been recognized multiple times by associations for her advocacy of family values and adoption outside the office.
Ellyn and her husband, David, are the proud parents of three children, Kyle, Imy, and Charlie. They adopted Kyle and Imy and have acted as the guardians of another child.
A stable and permanent family is perhaps the most important thing in developing a child’s life. Every day, we rely on people like Ellyn to unite families and improve lives. I applaud Ellyn for all of her hard work fighting for families in my district.
