Congress recently introduced the “Making Adoption Affordable Act of 2012” bill that would permanently expand the federal adoption tax credit to $13,360, and make it refundable. We shared this news and the action you can take through a blog post several weeks ago. Thank you for the action many of you took, by contacting your Representative and by sharing this post through social media.
Until this bill is passed, we will be doing everything we can to help make more affordable adoption a reality for families like yours.
Would you consider submitting a written story about how the adoption tax credit helped you? We will submit these stories to Representatives to continue to show the value and importance of this legislation. We are looking for compelling stories that show how the tax credit helped you, particularly if you would not have been able to adopt without it.
