All Children Everywhere Need Families. Help Right a Wrong.

Messages Sent So Far
I am a voter who resides in your district and am writing to you about an issue that is very important to me. I believe that every child has a basic human right to a family, and I am sure you agree. Unfortunately, current U.S. foreign policy and practice fails to recognize and protect this right in an effective manner. We?ve seen this failure play out time and time again, in countries such as Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal, Ethiopia, and most recently in the Democratic Republic of Congo. As a result, far too many children around the world live outside of parental care.

I believe that the U.S. Government must act immediately to right this wrong. I believe Congress must enact the pending legislation, Children in Families First (?CHIFF?). CHIFF goes to the heart of the issue, and delivers the structure necessary for the U.S. Government to finally provide the leadership that is lacking today for vulnerable children. CHIFF makes the changes we need by:

? Creating an office for vulnerable children and families in the Department of State that will create a foreign policy and diplomatic hub with a focus on strengthening families and creating families for children who need them.

? Directing the U.S. Agency for International Development to implement development programs to strengthen and create families.

? Making the adoption process more straight-forward and transparent for American families choosing to adopt overseas; and

? Providing the tools needed to count and identify orphans so that we can be sure our help is making a difference.

I support CHIFF, and I am writing to ask you to support CHIFF too by becoming a co-sponsor of Children in Families First. I am counting on you to help fix this human rights crisis, and so are millions of children.

With over 10 million orphans worldwide, we need to make the international adoption process more accessible and efficient for the sake of the children. With so many families trying to SAVE children, there is no excuse to turn families down to a whole country of children in need of a true loving and safe home.

Defending the widow and orphan is a top priority for our churches, but government needs to get on board. This is a pressing and vital matter for children around the world. Every moment we wait can mean the difference between life and death for these children. Every child deserves to find their forever family.

Children should not spend years in orphanages waiting for their adoptions to be approved. Children deserve to be in families. The system needs to change.

No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, therefore he/she needs to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.
