I oppose the proposed regulations

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the way adoptions are currently handled in this state.  This proposed action would interfere with the ability of faith-based organizations to help people adopt in accordance with their faith.  This makes no sense when residents have the option of adopting through public agencies, and when we have the Constitutionally- guaranteed right to practice our faith in accord with our conscience.  When something works, leave it alone.
