We received this e-mail from our agency regarding proposed legislation for the Haitian adoption process.
Dear Wasatch Haiti Waiting Families and associates;
I am passing along information from JCICS that I just received, the JCICS Haiti task force has been working tirelessly to help with the problems mounting in Haiti. The following is the result of their efforts and they are asking all of us to join in to see that changes are made.
“The efforts of the JCICS Haiti Task Force have at last come to fruition. This morning the office of Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA) with the support of Senator Sam Brownback (KS) sent a Dear Colleague letter to all members of both houses of the US Congress. It is time for our parents to act in support of the pending Haitian adoption law”.
Please share and post the letter below as much as possible. The Dear Colleague letter and the pending law need our maximum support. Have your families and friends get involved, we all need to work together to make changes in Haiti. Please make note that JCICS is asking that phone calls be made within a 72 hour window for maximum affect, the dates are listed below.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Please take a look at this site www.jcics.org/Haiti.htm to read the letter from JCICS ,dated August 12th ,on how you can help Vania and the many other waiting children come home to their forever families.
