I support antidiscrimination adoption laws

Adoptions should be judged solely on what is in the best interests of the child.  Families come in all shapes, sizes and colors.  A family's race, ethnicity, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, or status do not affect the love that they have to offer a child.  Commitment, in all its forms, constitutes family, and every child deserves the opportunity to be raised in a loving home.  Government has no role in deciding what a "family" looks like.  They must only decide if a potential adopter has the means, the support and the loving desire to provide a stable and nurturing environment!  Restore to the final rules protection against discrimination!
