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.

Every child deserves a family and a place to call home. Don't deny them of a wonderful future. Why wouldn't anyone want to give a child a chance at life, being stuck in an orphanage or an institute should not be permanent. It suppose to be something temporarily until a family comes to get these children or should I say their child. Why deny someone who is trying to give them a place to call home, a family, someone to call mom, dad, or grandmother, sister, and brother. A place we're they can go to school to get the proper education they rightfully deserve. How can anyone not want that for a child. Let's all make the process of adoption a good one, a memorable one. One were a parent can tell there child. One were they can share it with happiness in there heart and say we have an amazing government.
