UPDATE – Gov. McDonnell Announces His Support for Faith-Based Agencies
We have some good news to report. Within the last hour, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell announced that he will oppose proposed regulations that would have forced faith-based adoption agencies to compromise their religious and moral beliefs in order to continue in their vital ministry.
At a news conference held this afternoon, Governor McDonnell said, â€œmany of our adoption agencies are faith-based groups that ought to be able to establish what their own policies are.â€

Thank you to all who spoke out on this important issue! With your help, and by Godâ€™s grace, we were able to make a positive change for children and protect the rights of faith-based agencies.
