Proposed minimum licensing standards for adoption placement agencies

I commend you for adding this requirement for non-discrimination in adoption applications. There are too many children in need of a loving and stable home to deny any qualified applicant solely on the basis of family status or sexual orientation. The religious views of the agency should not be the deciding factor of whether a child receives a home.
