Homosexual Couples adopting children

To Whom It May Concern:

I am asking you to please vote "no" with regards to gay couples adopting children in VA.  They are not married, and NO child should be put into a "broken" home.  There is a reason there is a mother and father...both are needed for children to grow up learning all that is important.  Our society is difficult enough without having them start behind the "eight ball". Please do the right thing.  Just because a gay WANTS to get married and have children, doesn't make it right.  My heart goes out to those inclined that way, but we all have our crosses to bear in life.

Please do what's right!
