I Oppose changes in 22VAC40-131-170 Part B Adoption policy

Tolerance? Choice? Who is respecting my right to place a child that I may not be able to care for in a situation that I feel is best for him/her?  Studies prove again and again that families with stable male and female parents are best for the child.  Now our government is considering shutting down that option for me, not because we have run out of tradtional couples seeking to adopt, but solely based on political correctness.  Where is my right to choose?
