The GWCA/CAN team wants to assure our adoptive families that despite Congress’ ability to pass a spending bill by the start of the fiscal year (October 1), subsequently leading to government shutdowns, your adoption should still be processed at a normal rate. Government agency shutdowns should not affect the federal offices at which adoptions are processed. We assure you that we will notify families in the event of anything changing that should affect your adoption process. If there should be any questions please don’t hesitate to call our offices at 512.323.9595. Happy Tuesday!
