proposed Social Service Adoption Standards


My husband and I urge you to not approve the proposed Social Service Adoption Standards.  Certain proposed standards as stated in 22VAC40-131-170 Part B are in direct contradiction to Constitutional and statutory rights regarding religious freedom, and would force the closure of many faith-based adoption services such as Catholic Charities Adoption Services (CCAS).  Please do not approve the proposed Social Service Adoption.
Thank you.
