preserve religious freedom
 


Faith-based agencies provide vital services to our communities. They must be allowed to continue the great work they are doing.  If birthparentsw and prospective adoptive parents hold these beliefs as well, they have the right to choose and work with an agency that shares their values. 

This legislation could very cause many doors of faith- based agencies to close.  As a result our state's adoption and foster agencies could very easily find themselves overwhelmed-  and the ones to suffer would be the children and birthparents everyone is working so hard for.
