Adoption Update

The most up-to-date adoption news

In Honor Of Adoption Awareness Month

As stated in a previous post, November is Adoption Awareness Month and this years theme focuses on foster children. I thought the the information below would be a great way to kick off November.

Congress recently (10/3/08) passed a measure to increase incentives for adoption, especially for families adopting older children, sibling groups or children with special needs. In addition, it increases financial support for relatives of a child in the system, encouraging them to claim guardianship. Lastly, it extends resources for children ages 18-21 to help their transition into adulthood.

To read the actual Act, copy and paste the link below.
