Happy Wednesday Families,

As I discuss adoption with families, they always ask me for financial resources and planning.  I encourage our families, especially right now, to look into the adoption tax credit.  The current adoption tax credit can be a possibility for families with adoptions finalized by December 31, 2012.  If Congress does not keep this tax credit (currently at $12,650), the amount will drop to $6,000 and apply only to a small number of special needs adoptions; there will not be an adoption tax credit for most adoptions.  Learn more about the adoption tax credit here.

GWCA/CAN wants our families to feel comfortable and happy adopting.  You can make a difference and reach out to your representative about extending the adoption tax credit!  Find your representative here.   Also, check out this statement backed by two Congress people.

I hope to see this tax credit go through for our families….that would be wonderful!

Sincerely

Lizzie Kovach
