Get Real, Social Services!!

While I could offer very eloquent reasoning why children should not be placed in same sex couple relationships, I don't think it is even necessary.   GET REAL, Department of Social Services!!  Everyone already knows why that shouldn't be.  Children in Virginia deserve a normal home - a mother and a father.  You know that, and I know that, and everyone knows that - gays and lesbians included.  And let not anyone pretend otherwise.

The majority of Virginians do not support the gay agenda.  By placing a child in a same sex couple home, you would be endangering him/her.  If I were that child, I would bring a lawsuit against you when I became of age.  Such a child would have lifelong suffering - emotional, spiritual and sexual.

Your department is supposed to protect children, not put them in harm's way.  These children have no one to protect them but us.  We, the people of Virginia.  

I stand up for these children before my fellow Virginians and before God.  And I say again - GET REAL, Social Services!!  Protect these children!  You do not have the right to change what God has ordained - that children have a right to a mother and a father.

It is imperative that you do the right thing to protect these most vulnerable of children by not facilitating their adoption into same sex couple homes!
