No Discrimination of Potential Adoptive Parents

This committee of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond supports the proposed adoption regulations protecting potential parents from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender, age, disability, religious or political affiliation, race, color or national origin.

Personally, as an adoptive father I can't stress the need for adoptive parents, of all countries, races, beliefs, genders and sexual orientations.  The issue is whether the adoptive parent or parents will provide a safe, stable, loving home for the child which is unrelated to the potential parent's sexual orientation, racial/national background or religious/political beliefs.
