Preserve religious freedom

I'm extremely concerned with the current developments to change the laws concerning adoption in the state of Virginia.  As an adoptive parent of two wonderful girls, I believe strongly that faith-based organizations should be able to exercise their religious belifs without the influence from government.  forcing these agencies to go against their beliefs would be a gross violation of their religious fredoms provided in the US Constitution.  If it wasn't for these organizations, I would not have had a succesful adoption.  Please do not attempt to change these procedures to simply satisfy a MINORITY group of un-lawful couples.
