Children and their best interests.

As a current adoptive and foster parent,  I think it's time we realize that we need to do what's best for children.  My children have the most wonderful respite home, that of a lesbian couple, who are the most loving and care women my children have had the pleasure of knowing and caring about. 

State licensed child placing agencies should not be allowed to disciminate again children or prospective parents based or sexual orientation.  In addition all counties within the commonwealth should be held accountable to the same set of guidelines.  Roanoke City and Roanoke County will place children with gay/lesbian couples but Montgomery County will not. 


The state Board of Social Services should remember that our children are the most important issue and not religion, sexual orientation or financial standing within out community.  It's time the children receive the best care available.
