Child placement
 

 

Dear Legislators,

I would like to let you know that I think that 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

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, disability and family status

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

Thank you,

Sarah Lanzman
