Please prohibit adoption agencies from discriminating

I am a voter living in Virginia. All children deserve a loving, forever family. Currently, there are more than 1,000 children waiting to be adopted in Virginia. Decisions about prospective parents should be based on the best interest of the child, not on discriminatory factors unrelated to good parenting. When agencies act in the stead of the state, they should be bound by principles of non-discrimination even if they are private agencies.
