22 VAC 40-131-170

I urge you to allow faith-based adoption agencies to operate as they have been. Children are not social experiments and study after study has shown (no matter how much you choose to ignore them) that the best environment for a child is with a good mother and father. We have not seen consistent, long-term results from putting children in with same-sex couples, and therefore should not turn children into experiments and compromise their upbringing to a political agenda.
