Please contact your state representative and your senator and urge them to pass H.R 213 in support of the adoption tax credit. Even if you are not planning to adopt, please support adoptive families and advocate for orphans by contacting your representatives in Congress to voice your support for this bill.
Don't have money to give?
I couldn't find where to grab her blog button, so that's only a picture. But, go to her blog post here. She is donating $1 for every comment left to two relief organizations helping Haiti (to be chosen from the ones suggested by commenters, so make sure to say which organization you support.)
THEN......go to each of the other blogs listed in her post (including my new favorite, Pioneer Woman) where you can also leave a comment that will be turned into a donation.
No money required and hardly any effort.
I hope we will all prayerfully consider how we can sacrificially give- meaning that we will truly give up something we would have spent money on and use that money to show compassion for the people of Haiti by donating it instead.
But, if nothing else we can all leave a comment on a blog. It is quite literally the least we can do for people who are suffering beyond what most of us will ever understand.
It's hard to believe, but my baby just turned 4! It's been an absolute joy to watch her bloom in to a little person (4 going on 14 for SURE). Anyone who has met Chloe will tell you she's got some magic. If I had a dollar for every time people tell me this, I'd be rich. (She doesn't get it form me. I am completely magic-less.) She just charms the pants off of everyone.....it's like she's done this before.
