I was raised in Virginia, educated at a Virginia University, and now I work in Virginia. This state is home to me and my boyfriend. We're both from here and trying to plan our lifes here. It would be nice if our home state was inclusive of us and welcomed us as her citizens. There is no reason a child in Virginia should be homeless or a ward of the state because of discriminatory laws. Please work to make Virginia a better place and make sure children of Virginia have every chance at a loving home and higher education.
