Christian foster and adoptive parents

It has come to my attention that you are about to enact a regulation which would shut Christian potential foster and adoptive parents out of consideration for child placement.  As an adoptive mother I find this discriminatory and unconscionable.  It would significantly delay, or even deny, loving homes to a number of needy children.  The needs of children should come before political correctness.
