Dear Adoption Advocates



Dear Adoption Advocates,

I want to thank all of you for signing the letter to Senator Lincoln on reauthorizing the Improved Adoption Incentives & Guardianship Support Act. I’ve attached the sign-on letter so that you can see who signed the letter.

I also have good news – she has taken an active role in trying to push the legislation through the Senate Finance Committee! Our sign-on letter played a very important role in her doing so. I’ve attached the letter that she circulated to her colleagues to sign. This letter encouraged the Finance Committee to act quickly. Senator Lincoln’s staff worked very hard last week and was able to get 30 other Senators to sign on to this letter.

Here is some more good news - Senator Pryor signed the letter to the Senate Finance Committee and today he also became a co-sponsor of the legislation.

It is very important that we all thank them for their efforts. If you could drop their staff an email, I would very much appreciate it. Here is the information and some suggested text:

For Senator Lincoln please email: Tony McClain at: tony_mcclain@lincoln.senate.gov
and say: I want to thank Senator Lincoln for not only being a co-sponsor of the Improved Adoption Incentives & Guardianship Support Act, but also taking an active role in trying to push the legislation through the Senate Finance Committee.

For Senator Pryor please email: Bess Ginty at: bess_ginty@pryor.senate.gov
and say: I want to thank Senator Pryor for his support of the Improved Adoption Incentives & Guardianship Support Act.

I’ll keep you posted!

Thanks, Jennifer
