Catholic Church X Adoption

I was very disapointed to hear about the new proposal regarding the adoption procedures. I'm Catholic and I've been myself in the position of trying to adopt a child. Whithin the Catholic Church all the procedures are done through people with  wonderful ethics and compassionate hearts. In our Church I've never felp that the money was the major issue behind the system. For our Church this is not a bussiness but a process to help both families and child, having the child interest above everything.

I hope whoever is dealing with this Regulatory Action, don't let their personal or groups interests get ahead of the children wellbeing. It's sad to see the direction that our world is going to and see that people like you, representing us, even comtemplate in punishing the Church/children for their wonderful job.
