Protect the children and parents/agencies freedoms







Please don't pass these allowances and therefore force faith-based adoption agencies and birth parents to have to reject their own beliefs in regard to marriage and the family as it affects child placement decisions.   

Please reject any proposed changes that would discriminate against such agencies as well as many birth parents. These agencies have done great things for the adoptive families and children over many years. Why would you want to force on them regulations that could even cause some to close their doors rather than have to comply? Who loses then - the children! Who is more important in this discussion than the children who you are supposed to be protecting. don't let these special interest groups force on the rest of us their agenda. Stay witih what has worked for hundreds of years.
