We are excited to announce that we recently received bill-specific endorsement letters from prominent birth/first parent groups and individuals. The letters, which specifically endorse the Weprin/Montgomery Bill, have been added to our growing list of endorsements for the bill and have been forwarded to New York legislators. The Weprin/Montgomery bill now has more than 90 legislative sponsors and dozens of organizations behind it, as well as tens of thousands of adoptees working to have it enacted. Here are the endorsement letters we just got.
