Social Services Board Adoption Rules
 

Dear Virginia Social Services Board:

1.   The best interests of the child should be the sole factor in deciding whether a child should be placed with a prospective foster care or adoptive parent or parents.

2.    State-licensed child placing agencies should not be allowed to discriminate against children or prospective parents based on race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender expression, disability and family status.

3.    The State Board of Social Services should restore to the final rules the protections against such discrimination included in the proposed rules.

Sincerely,

 Tigran Muradyan
