Preserve religious freedom

I want to thank the Board for their April decision revising regulations for licensed child-placing agencies.  I applaud this decision which upheld the fundamental right of faith-based agencies to continue their great work without governmental intrusion into the practice of their faith.  I am an adoptive parent and I know that birthparents as well as adoptive parents have every right to work with agencies that share their values. Faith-based agencies provide vital services to our communities. They must be allowed to continue the great work they are doing.
