NO to regulation 22 VAC 40-131-170(B).

I oppose proposed regulation 22 VAC 40-131-170(B).

This is not in the best interest of the children. If an agency provides good parents for children, they should not be opposed and put out of buisness. This is taking away from needy children

The message of exclusion you will send to children with strong religious identities, as well as to potential foster and adoptive parents is unconscionable and destructive.
