I am writing to express my opposition to the new regulations proposed by the Virginia Department of Social Services that violate the rights of faith-based child welfare agencies, and will deny countless orphaned and vulnerable children the right to a permanent, loving family. I urge you to do everything in your power to oppose this regulation and protect the right of faith-based organizations to continue to serve children.
