Future Adoptive Families Need Help

Adoption is expensive and many families need help paying for their children's adoptions. My family was no different. As the law states now, families can take a tax credit for their adoption expenses up to about $12,000. Families who choose to adopt children with special needs from the US foster care system can claim the entire credit without any expenses.

This tax credit has helped countless children find forever families. It helped make Jacob's adoption possible and I hope to take the credit for M's adoption as well.

The problem is that the bill is set to sunset at the end of 2010. There is a new bill in committee that would repeal the sunset and make the tax credit permanent. Please help children find forever families and families be able to afford an adoption. Here is a link to an article on rainbowkids.com about the bill and how to help.
