I am passionate about adoption as an alternative for extending families. As you know adoption costs can be extremely expensive and add up quickly. There are many good families in the United States whom want to adopt a child both in our country and internationally but are held back due to not being able to afford the process. President Obama graciously extended the bill for adoption tax credit expiring January 2011 for both children with non-disabilities and disabilities. He also kindly made the tax credit refundable. I trust in your power as a representative of our State and ask that you do everything you can to keep this bill active. Thank you so much for your time and effort in this matter.
