100% supportive of this bill and your efforts. Thank you.

Please pass this bill, it would help so many families and lead the way to others in other states.
Thank you.

David and Jennifer Ryan writes:

This bill would assist adoptive parents and allow Virginia to remain a leader in family values.

Kris & Angela Peerman writes:

People claim that giving life to a child is a divine miracle, and indeed it is. Choosing to adopt a child is also a miracle, wherein many hands work together to manifest God's will: that this mother, this father, and this child (whatever their respective locations and histories) come together and form the bonds of love that make a family. By passing this bill, the State of Virginia and its lawmakers have the opportunity join their hands with the many others that consummate this miracle for Virginia's adoptive families.

Connie & Steve LeMarr writes:

100% supportive. This bill strengthens and assists bringing children permanently into the love of a family. Thank you.

D. Park writes:

As an adoptive parent and chair of the board for Adoptions Together, I fully support this bill. It would be a great benefit for both domestic and international adoptions which give children a chance to have a loving family and a future.

Peter Metrinko & Laura Miller writes:

We are blessed with adopted children. We had the good fortune of having enough money to do it. But it is very expensive, and without tax credit relief adoption is out of the reach of many loving families. Please pass this bill, and help save a child.

Joel Miller writes:

100% Supportive. Encouraging adoption of all children is only a start. Providing the means to support families pursuing this noble calling is a positive government function. This Bill will further support the preference for families over state-supported foster care--highly desirable.
