Please Reconsider Bill as Written

A discriminating opinion is necessary to ensure a child is placed into an appropriate home environment.

A child should only be placed in a home with a married man and woman of good character.  In some special circumstances a single parent may be appropriate.  However, this bill reduces the ability of qualified professionals to place a child in an appropriate environment where the child can thrive.
