As one who grew up an orphan, I applaud the leadership of the House of Representatives and the Ways and Means Committee for the action taken today to restore the Adoption Tax Credit (ATC). Our friends and listeners responded to our calls to contact members of Congress and amend the initial proposal. In turn, our elected officials have heeded our plea.
The ATC is a vital tool supporting the life-affirming and life-saving act of adoption. It is a crucial part of a pro-life and pro-family policy agenda.
There are many orphans whose lives will be changed for the better because of this change of course, and we are grateful for this decision.
We look forward to continuing to work with lawmakers to advance the cause of adoption in our nation.
