Adoption Tax Credit Update

Last Friday, December 17th, the Adoption Tax Credit was extended to go through December 31st, 2012.  The refundability of the credit still ends December 31st, 2011. For 2012, the credit will be the old adoption credit, with adjustment for inflation.

Adopting is very pricey, and it looks like Congress is trying to help where they can.  This is great news for all of our adoptive families!

Here they are, 12 Babies of Christmas!

From all over the US, the 12 Babies of Christmas:

1. Gabriella (Nevada)
2. Faith (California)
3. Francisco (New Mexico)
4. Christian (Pennsylvania)
5. Piper (Pennsylvania)
6. Randy (Pennsylvania)
7. Emma (Pennsylvania)
8. Twins Bennett and Isabelle (Oklahoma)
9. Darragh (Pennsylvania)
10. Lauren (Maine)
11. Nicholas (Nevada)
12. Joseph (Iowa)

Happy Holidays to our new families :)

12 Babies of Christmas

Rather than celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas, this year we are celebrating the 12 Babies of Christmas! 

Just this month, we have created 12 new families, including a miracle baby that has surpassed all expectations.  We are also working hard to finalize adoptions before the year ends, with five finalizations in the last week of December.

This holiday season, we have a place in our hearts for our newly created families and the brave birth mothers.

Happy Holidays from A Baby Step!
