Opposition to proposed regulations of private adoption agencies

The regulations which you are proposing is  not in the best interest of any child which may be put up for adoption.  No long term study has ever been done to see the outcome of the life of a child with two men as parents.  The very fact that two people of the same sex are unable to have a child of their own is reason to realize that children were meant to have a mother and a father--one of each sex present in their lives.   Moreover, this new regulation  if passed will be discriminating against all christian prospective adoptive parents.   Life is not fair but there are allot of other ways two gay people could fulfill their nurturing side without adopting a child.  They should not have the right to change the laws of Nature.
