Protect Christian Adoption Agencies
 

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

The message of exclusion that you 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 your state.  This seems totally backwards!!!

Please don't let your liberal values interfere with a loving home for these needy children.

Thanks & God bless.
