An Example of a Letter to Mail, Fax, or E-mail Your Representative Regarding the Hope for Children Act of 2001 (H.R. 622)

Mailed or Faxed Correpondence...

To A Representative:

The Honorable (full name)
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative (last name):

One of the greatest joys for a married couple is the addition of a child to their home. Unfortunately, some couples are not physically able to have their own children and choose to adopt. To help offset the tremendous expense of adoption, the federal government currently allows a tax credit of $5,000.

Through the passage of the Hope for Children Act of 2001, that tax credit would be doubled from $5,000 to $10,000. In addition, the couple's earning limit would rise from $75,000 to $150,000.

Such tax credits will help personal budgets that are strained by an increased cost of living due to adoption expenses. As your constituent, I encourage you to support the Hope for Children Act of 2001 (H.R. 622).

Thank you for your consideration to support this bill.

Sincerely,

(Your Name*)
