Vote against homosexual adoption in VA

I am writing to add to this long list of expressions of opposition regarding the new regulations proposed by the Virginia Department of Social Services that violate the rights of faith-based child welfare agencies.  If passed, this will deny countless orphaned and vulnerable children the right to a permanent, loving family.  You cannot possibly want that to happen.


I urge you to do everything in your power to oppose this regulation and protect the right of faith-based organizations to continue to serve the children of our community. 

I will be following this issue and your response closely.
