Adoption
 

 The best interests of the child should be the sole factor in deciding whether a child should be placed with a prospective foster care or adoptive parent or parents

2) State-licensed child placing agencies should not be allowed to discriminate against children or prospective parents based on race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, disability and family status

3) The State Board of Social Services should restore to the final rules the protections against such discrimination included in the proposed rules.

My daughter knows no discrimination, but if you took her two mothers from her it would be clear to her.  Love is blind and if you doubt it, you are welcome to my home, my child's school and all of our extended family's homes to see otherwise.

We elect you to do the right thing, don't play politics with family.
