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!

China | 3 years old | Girl
Fiona is a precious little one who is about to turn 3 years old! She was born with Down’s Syndrome and a heart defect known as a PFO. When she was 1 years old, she would sit up on her own, crawl and babble. At the age of 18 months she could stand up with a little support and was babbling and saying simple words. Fiona has been receiving rehabilitation services and she seems to be doing great! She is walking for longer distances while holding onto some support. Fiona is described as being compliant, cute and affectionate. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. Contact one of our matching specialists today if you’d like to learn more about Fiona!
