Russian Lawmakers Back a Bill Banning Adoptions from U.S.

On Wednesday, Russian lawmakers backed a bill that would ban adoption by U.S. families.  The action is widely seen as retaliation for U.S. sanctions against Russia for human rights violations.  I personally find this sadly ironic.
You can read a story in today's Daily Herald.
Here's how your voice can be heard.
Sasha D’Jamoos is a young Russian adoptee with special needs who last week started Voice of the Child, a campaign to encourage the continuation of adoptions between Russia and the United States. As part of his campaign, Sasha has published a letter and petition to President Putin. Please sign the petition and encourage others to do so as well. Click here to sign the petition and please forward to others who may be interested.
