Don't Hurt the Children or the Christian Adoption Agencies!

"Don't hurt needy children by driving religious foster care and adoption agencies out of business. If an agency provides good parents for children, they should be embraced, not rejected by the state of Virginia.

The message of exclusion you will send to children with strong religious identities, as well as to potential foster and adoptive parents is unconscionable and destructive.

The state of Virginia Social Services has no right to impose this strange new morality on other people, to the detriment of the neediest children in our state." (Brian Brown, NOM President)

Hear us, the people, don't force us into your idea of 'natural' or 'normal', only God can identify those terms. Do not punish needy children because you will not or can not embrace our religious position, Christian Adoption agencies have the God given right to place needy children in homes with a loving mother and father. Don't punish the Children!!
