As previously highlighted, the adoption tax credit will be greatly limited if it is not extended by December 31. Recently, a bill to extend the credit was introduced. Supporters can now ask their member of the House of Representatives to co-sponsor the bi-partisan H.R. 4373, known as the “Making Adoption Affordable Act.”
(Note that although not directly involved in lobbying, the Alliance seeks to ensure our network is informed of key policy issues and legislation with potential to impact engagement by Christians in foster care, adoption and global orphan care.)
Citizens can reach their Representative by calling the U.S. Capitol Operator at 202-225-3121 and asking for their Representative’s office. (Those who do not know their Representative’s name can find it at http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ using their zip code.)
Citizens contacting their representative can convey a clear message simply by expressing that want to see the adoption tax credit extended, and one or more reasons it matters to them. Citizens can then ask their Representative to become a co-sponsor of The Making Adoption Affordable Act, H.R. 4373.
