Our friends at Both Ends Burning have asked for our help in passing the Children In Families First Act (CHIFF) through a special push this week on social media. Right now, this bill is sitting in the Foreign Relations Committee and needs to move on by August.
This bill would establish an office in the State Department to implement effective child welfare systems – getting children into safe, permanent and loving families. It is not a request for more money. It’s not solely about international adoption. It isn’t telling countries how to care for vulnerable children. The goal is to utilize funds to support and partner with governments to place children into families.
Because every child deserves a family!
