What is the adoption tax credit?
The adoption tax credit, which can be claimed for eligible adoption-related expenses, has helped thousands of American families offset the high cost of adoption since the credit was established in 1997. It has made adoption a financially 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 over 100,000 children in the U.S. foster care system currently eligible for adoption, and an ever increasing number of orphaned and abandoned children worldwide languishing in institutions, the continuation of the adoption tax credit is vital to providing love, safety, and permanency through adoption to as many children as possible.

Currently, a CAN staff member is in Haiti with about 6 families who are traveling to visit their children while waiting to be approved to leave Haiti at various stages. Families are allowed to visit their adoptive children monthly while waiting for the adoption to be finalized. We’re very excited for all of these families! Our CAN staff member says, “Everyone is so amazing and very energetic. I spent a while playing with the kids and touring the creche yesterday. They just got a playscape a few weeks ago & have no concept of appropriate slide decorum. They were climbing every which way, it’s hilarious! The babies are beautiful!”Read More
