Many of you have wondered what will happen to the Federal Adoption Tax Credit after it is set to expire at the end of this year. On April 17, 2012, Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA) introduced the Making Adoption Affordable Act. The act will permanently expand the federal adoption tax credit to $13,360 and make it refundable.
Congressman Braley’s bill is an important first step in making this financial help available to families into the future and therefore help many more children into Christian homes. For most families the financial cost of adoption is the number one hurdle to moving forward. We have seen the Tax Credit serve as a catalyst to many families taking the step of faith in adoption and hope to see it continue.
Will you join us in advocating on behalf of orphaned and vulnerable children by contacting your member of Congress to urge them to vote “YES” on the Making Adoption Affordable Act?
