On Thursday, The New York Foundling hosted its first annual Fall Fête at The NoMad Hotel in New York City. The evening was emceed by Emmy Award-winning television host of NBC’s Talk Stoop Cat Greenleaf and featured a performance by New York singer and songwriter Rachel Brown. Other notable guests included Orange is the New Black’s Catherine Curtin and Joel Marsh Garland and The Knick’s Michael Nathanson.

 

Speaking about her personal connection to The Foundling and National Adoption Month, Cat Greenleaf shared how the organization supported her and her husband, Michael, ten years ago as they embarked on their journey to adopt their two sons, Primo and Truman. “When I’m here telling our success story, I think we never would have pushed through the miasma of the adoption world if it wasn’t for people who helped us guide our rudder and our compass along the way,” said Greenleaf.
