Keep Current Adoption Regulations in Place

I live in Alexandria, Virginia and am a regular voter in all elections.  I understand that the Department of Social Services is considering implementing changes to the regulations governing adoption agencies in a manner that would require those agencies, including faith-based agencies, to allow adoption by same sex couples.  I am firmly against any such regulations.   Moreover, I fear that imposing such regulatory changes might lead some, or even many, of our faith-based organizations that handle so many adoptions to decide to stop providing those services since such a regulation conflicts with many of their moral and ethical precepts.

Please do not pass any such regulatory changes.

Thank you for your consideration.
