Please join the effort of the Adoption Tax Credit Working Group to protect the adoption tax credit and make it refundable.

The adoption tax credit helps children who need families! We are asking you to call, email, post on Facebook or Twitter, or otherwise contact your members of Congress (one Representative and two Senators) to ask them to protect the adoption tax credit and make it refundable by becoming a co-sponsor of the Adoption Tax Credit Refundability Act (H.R. 2144 or S. 1056).


Save the Adoption Tax Credit is the effort of a national collaboration of organizations and individuals called the Adoption Tax Credit Working Group that have united to support the cause of adoption by advocating for the adoption tax credit.

The adoption tax credit  has made adoption a more viable option for many parents who might not otherwise have been able to afford adoption, allowing them to provide children with loving, permanent families. With more than 100,000 children in U.S. foster care available for adoption, and countless millions of orphaned and abandoned children around the world, the continuation of the adoption tax credit is vital to providing love, safety, and permanency to as many children as possible.

We hope you will join us in advocating to ensure the adoption tax credit remains permanent and to make it refundable, which will allow it to aid lower- and moderate-income adoptive families as Congress intended! A refundable credit will do a better job of encouraging adoption and giving every child a better chance to have a permanent, loving family.
