Who Should You Listen To About Adoption?

It often seems as if everyone suddenly becomes an "adoption expert" when they find out that you are planning to adopt. But what advice can you really trust about how adoption works?

The answer is simple -- the adoption professionals you have sought help from. The adoption process is a very complex one -- differing from country to country and state to state. Only the adoption professionals you are working with to make your adoption dreams a reality are familiar with your case and are equipped to provide you the accurate, trustworthy advice and information you need to know....


Bills Introduced in Congress to Make the Adoption Tax Credit Refundable

Just before Memorial Day weekend, bills to make the adoption tax credit refundable were introduced in the Senate and the House.
In the Senate, the Adoption Tax Refundability Act (S. 1056) was introduced by Senator Casey (D-PA), Senator Landrieu (D-LA), and Senator Blunt (R-MO). The House bill, H.R. 2144, was introduced by Representative Braley (D-IA).
 The adoption tax credit was refundable in tax years 2010 and 2011, which meant that many more children and their adoptive families were able to take advantage of it. The Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act would make the adoption tax credit a benefit to lower and moderate income families who cannot currently use it.

We will follow this closely and keep you informed on the results of this effort....

Adoption Poem – Adoptive Mom to Child


Longing for a child to love,
I'd wish upon the stars above.
In my heart I always knew,
a part of me was meant for you.

I think how happy we will be,
once I adopt you and you adopt me.

I dream of all the joy you'll bring,
imagining even the littlest things.
The way it will feel to hold you tight,
and tuck you in every night.

The drawings on the refrigerator door,
childhood toys across the floor.
The favorite stories read again and again,
hours of games...

Why Placing Your Baby Up for Adoption is Not Giving Up

The biggest misconception that exists about the adoption process is that the birth parents are figuratively and physically “giving up” their child and “giving up” on their ability to raise one. The problem is that this is a battle that cannot be won, and birth parents are forever burdened by the guilt that such negative rhetoric carries. It’s time to put such falsities to rest.

It’s being selfless
Contrary to harsh criticism, such as it is selfish to think about your own life instead of theirs, the opposite is in fact true. It...
