    Adoption Tax Credit 2014-2015

    in Parents

    It's time for our annual adoption tax credit show. If you had adoption expenses in 2014, can you get a federal tax credit for them? Is this tax credit applicable to foster care adoption, or international adoption, or infant adoption? Can you claim birth mother expenses. Host Dawn Davenport, Exec. Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization, will interview Becky Wilmoth, an Enrolled Agent and Adoption Tax Credit Specialist® at Bills Tax Service, and a frequent speaker on this topic. We also have Josh Kroll, Adoption Tax Credit and Adoption Subsidy Coordinator at the North American Council on Adoptable Children (NACAC).

    Will Arkansas anti-gay law legalize discrimination for all unprotected classes?

    in LGBT

    Monday, February 23rd, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson allowed a new law to block future anti-discrimination laws (to go into effect 90 days after the legislative session ends later this summer).  While the premise of the new law known as SB 202 appears reasonable, in actuality this law allows legal discrimination for all non-protected classes.


    In this episode, we hear from three Arkansas residents.  Meet once again Scott Wyant, Founder of Straight Talk Arkansas, a website dedicated to Living liberally in the Mid-South.


    We'll also hear from Cathey Shoshone and Christina Harrison. Cathey is the Co-Chair and Christina is the Founder of Arkansans For Equality.  


    Christina Harrison was born and raised in Arkansas. She founded Arkansans for Equality in 2011. As an ally, she had become frustrated with the bigotry she came across towards our fellow Arkansans in the LGBTQ community and wanted to do something to help. She began a ballot initiative to repeal Amendment 83 soon after. Christina is a combat veteran in the Army National Guard, and has just recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.


    Cathey Shoshone, also an ally, was born in Arkansas but has lived in several states around the South. She lives in Arkansas currently, She "liked" the Arkansan for Equality facebook page and volunteered to collect signatures for the ballot initiative.  The ballot initiative became obsolete when Cheryl Maples and Jack Wagoner won their case in Judge Piazza's courtroom legalizing same-sex marriage.  A federal case has also overthrown Amendment 83 to the Arkansas State Constitution. This decision has been stayed pending an appeal hearing.

    "Celebrity Interracial Adoption: Love Or Fad?"

    in Lifestyle

    Our host returns live tonight at 11 pm...tonight we will be revisiting the subject of celebrity interracial adoption. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were among the first Hollywood couples known for adopting internationally. In the most recent time period, many more celebrities have come forth to do the same, and the difference is that more Black children are the adoptees than ever before. The challenges of standard adoption in itself fare difficult enough, and one of the major challenges is the desire of the adoptee to connect with his or her identity. Are the challenges of interracial adoption by high profile figures doubled? Is the cultural identity of the adoptee at a higher risk of being eradicated by these adoptees? And in cases such as Madonna who has been in controversy for making racial slurs and has now adopted two more Black children, are these celebrities adopting out of love or commercial gain? Join in tonight at 11 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.
