children need people who care and CHOOSE to parent !!

1) 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.

applying to  ADOPT  is a thouroughly thought out choice.  Please do not limit our choices unless you also plan to reduce our taxes for the "choices" (services) you would be denying us access to.
