Adoption Tax Credit Safe...for Now
According to this article from the weekly, after "public outcry and pressure from pro-life and family groups, Republicans in the House and Senate have agreed to restore the adoption tax credit in their pending tax reform legislation."
Yay! Thanks to all who called your representative in Congress to voice your concerns about the adoption tax credit. This is a win for adoptive families - and those waiting to adopt - everywhere! However, please stay tuned as, according to this article, issues with the adoption tax credit may resurface. Translation: We need to be vigilant until this tax reform plan is a done deal.
If you haven't figured it out already, adoption is near and dear to my heart. I can't say enough about my beautiful daughters and their selfless birth moms. Adoption is a beautiful choice that made my dreams of becoming a mom a reality!
Until next time,
