Please take a moment and continue to support the FACE Act legislation (S.1359 and H.R. 3110) by calling your Senators and Representative on Tuesday (tomorrow), Wednesday and Thursday. It is imperative that they hear that this legislation is important to you, their constituents.

  1. >Hi, I'm in the process of adopting my second child (this time from Ethiopia) and love your blog. Don't know if you've seen it yet, but McLane has also written an open letter to the adoption community regarding provisions of the bill that seem to have been misunderstood by some. I have it on my site, but also have a soft copy if you'd like it.
