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.

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.

We need actions and implementations to streamline these adoptions so these children that are waiting in institutions will not be developmentally and emotionally stunted. These children need families and love. Stop the neglect and apathy toward these children that are suffering everyday in institutions all over the world. We need to take action NOW and end these injustices.

This is senseless bureaucracy. We need to get these children into loving arms before their futures are destroyed.
