It's no secret that adoption fees can be quite hefty. Currently, our government provides a $13,170 Adoption Tax Credit. This credit, however, is set to expire the end of this year. YOU can help. Contact your Congressmen... ask them to please preserve the Adoption Tax Credit.
Not only does the tax credit help families who might have not been able to afford adoption, it also helps an already overstrained Foster Care system.
Making a difference is simple and will only take a few minutes of your time. Pick up the phone and call... fire off a quick email... tell your friends and family to do the same. Your Senator and Representative's contact information can be found here. When contacting your Senator, reference bill S.2816 and your Representative, H.R.213.
A few minutes of your time may literally be the difference between life and death for an orphan.
