Sociological studies have been done on families for years. Would your vote be based on the science of such studies? I think we know where kids do best. Kids do best in a home where the Mom and Dad are together. As much as possible, we try to have children in an enviroment where this model is lived before them.

We live in a country where we have freedom of religion and freedom of conscience. Therefore, we can find an adoption agency that fits our philosopy. Freedom and choices are a privledge we take for granted. I believe there is room in this country for Christian cdoption services.
