Please don't punish kids in greatest need, or those who work charitably for them.

Please do not continue on this destructive path which will harm the agencies which do so much good for the neediest in our state, the children who need the love and protection of a family.   Religious foster care and adoption agencies provide so much for these children, and do so with the greatest of intentions, based on their calling and convictions.  They should not be infringed in this endeavor in any way, and should be promoted as stellar examples of charity toward others.
