Adoption by same-sex couples

I am opposed to adoption by same-sex couples.  I deeply oppose the regulations that the VA DSS has proposed that would require any private or faith-based adoption agencies to accept the applications of same-sex couples for the purposes of adoption.

Given the great importance of this issue, please extend the comment period beyond today (4/1/11).

Thank you.
