Please do not force agencies to place children with same-sex couples

It would defy common sense and morality for the Commonwealth of Virginia to say that adoption agencies cannot prefer to place a child with a married man and woman as opposed to placing the child with two men or women in a same-sex relationship.

Our commonwealth should be doing more to promote marriage, as opposed chipping away at it.
