Regulatory Action involving lifting any restrictions on child placement

I DO NOT support lifting tight restrictions on child placement regarding allowing only a married husband and wife to adopt.  The future of our nation and the next generations, will be extremely negatively affected by such a change. We know that the traditional family is the healthiest in raising children. Let's give them a fundamental home of a mother and a father who are married to each other and then let them grow up, be taught good values and step into adulthood with the freedom of making their own decisions.
