Adoption agencies

I'm writing to ask that religious adoption agencies be allowed to follow the guidelines of their own faith. My sister's child was placed for adoption by just such an agency, which did a wonderful job of helping our family through a time of crisis. So many children would lose out if agencies like this were driven out of business by being forced to put political correctness above what they believe is best for children. Thank you.
