Testimonials

This was the hardest decision I have and probably ever will make in my life. All the ladies (especially Rachel) were really amazing. They helped me focus on the positive and reminded me that I am making the best decision for my daughter. I could not have gone through with the adoption if I didn’t have them by my side. Heart to Heart is a really amazing agency who works miracles. All the employees truly are angels and I am forever in their debt. Thank you for giving my daughter the opportunity to have a better life. I wish there was a way I could pay them back for everything they have done for me and my baby girl.

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....
