I am a voter living in Virginia. All children deserve to thrive in a loving home where they can feel safe and secure. Decisions about prospective parents should focus on the best interests of those children who desperately need parents and not based on discriminatory criteria. All agencies who are acting on behalf of the state should be bound to using non-discrimination standards. With the large number of children in Virginia who are waiting to be placed in a permanent home, no qualified prospective parent should be turned away due to criteria that has nothing to do with good parenting.
