Texas HB 3859 significantly limits the opportunities for foster and adoptive children in Texas.  The bill allows agencies to deny placement to LGBTQ families or with previously divorced parents; and deny placement of a child with an adoptive or foster family of a different faith.  The bill allows for placement of a child with strangers instead of a close relative because the relative is gay or transgender.

I write to you today to urge you to overturn Texas HB 3859, which relates to the protection of the rights of conscience for child welfare services providers.  

By overturning this bill, you would be representing thousands of children and parents who deserve to be matched as families.  Children deserve to be loved and to be safe.  This bill will help those who want to care for those children.
