To whom this may concern,
As an adoptive parent, I strongly encourge the committee to not discriminate against fatih-based agencies by forcing them to place children with homosexual partners. Faith based agencies do a tremendous amount of good, charitable work in our commonwealth and to tie their hands would do a severe disservice to the birth families, the children , and adoptive families. Do not give in to the homosexual activist agenda. Do not force faith-based agencies to choose between their beliefs and providing the services which spring from their beliefs.
