👍🏻 HOUSE Bill H.R.1952 AKA “Inter-country Adoption Information Act” 👍🏻
I’m in strong support of an recommend the passage of the House Bill H.R. 1952 AKA the “Inter-country Adoption Information Act of 2019” which would amend the Intercountry Adoption Act (IAA) of 2000 to require the Secretary of State to include information on countries that have carried out a new policy or law reducing or preventing adoptions to the U.S. in their annual report as well as actions taken by the State Dept. which have prevented adoptions to the U.S.
A bill to amend the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 to require the Secretary of State to report on intercountry adoptions from countries which have significantly reduced adoption rates involving immigration to the United States, and for other purposes.
Adoptive families seeking to adopt from countries with restrictive adoption policies or bans on adoption to the U.S. need to be empowered with as much information as possible. Enhancing the State Dept.’s existing report on intercountry adoption to include information about countries with policies to this effect will help give families more information.
