Often we get asked what are some ways we can help orphans.....well here is one way you can help-
The Adoption Tax Credit has helped many families adopt children, some who otherwise may
not financially been able to adopt. This tax credit has been a blessing to us as it helped us with our 1st adoption and has helped paid some of the fees for this adoption. The current tax credit is going to expire on Dec. 31, 2012-so any family that completes their adoption after that date this valuable credit will not be available.
There are now bills in both the House (HR 4373) and the Senate (S 3616) - if you would please consider contacting your Representative to co-sponsor HR 4373 and both your Senators to co-sponsor S 3616. Below are links about the tax credit along with links to finding your Representative and Senators.

We encourage everyone to contact their two U.S. Senators to ask them to become co-sponsors of this bipartisan bill. You can find your Senators and their contact information at http://www.senate.gov/pagelayout/general/one_item_and_teasers/contacting.htm
You can reach your Representative by calling the U.S. Capitol Operator at (202) 225-3121 and asking for your Representative's office. If you don't know your Representative's name, go to http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ and enter your zip code in the box provided.
Here is a link to a Action Alert letter from adoption agency for you to use or modify when you call your Representative: http://www.allgodschildren.org/AdvocacyAlert.pdf.
