Please Help. . .

I have grown to love "bloggy world". I have met a lot of inspiring people who remind me once again that there are people out there trying to live for Christ and to be His hands and feet!
One such sight is A Place Called Simplicity
A recent post saddened us as we have just started our adoption journey.
A tax credit, which helps many adoptive parents overcome the financial stumbling block, is in danger of being unavailable in 2013. Adoption can be up to $30,000. The tax credit was a big help to many!
PLEASE PRAY for our congress men and women to reconsider this.
Read the following and consider signing the petition! It's quick, easy, doesn't cost anything, and helps out in the cause of the fatherless (Isaiah 1:17)
In 2013 the tax credit will be a maximum of $6,000 for parents adopting children with special needs. There will be no adoption tax credit available for all other adoptive parents beginning in tax year 2013.

Could you ask your readers to sign the petition at

Additionally, there is a bill in Congress trying to get passed and if it goes through there will be a PERMANENT tax credit put in place.

There are some key politicians who need to receive letters/emails supporting the adoption tax credit. The following politicians are sponsors of this Adoption Bill, if you reside in one of these states it is extremely important that you send some type of communication to them:
Richard Burr [R-NC]
Robert Casey [D-PA]
Thad Cochran [R-MS]
Kirsten Gillibrand [D-NY]
Kay Hutchison [R-TX]
Tim Johnson [D-SD]
Amy Klobuchar [D-MN]
Pat Roberts [R-KS]
John Thune [R-SD]
In addition to these Finance Committee members:

Sen. Max Baucus [D-MT]
Sen. Orrin Hatch [R-UT]
Sen. Jeff Bingaman [D-NM]
Sen. Richard Burr [R-NC]
Sen. Maria Cantwell [D-WA]
Sen. Benjamin Cardin [D-MD]
Sen. Thomas Carper [D-DE]
Sen. Thomas Coburn [R-OK]
Sen. Kent Conrad [D-ND]
Sen. John Cornyn [R-TX]

Please consider signing this petition for the cause of the orphan. Signing the petition takes about a minute, at the most.
If you live in one of the states listed above, would you please call your representative and show your support? Every call does make a difference.
