We strongly support policy to protect children from abuse and neglect. We also support fixing and strengthening our adoption and foster care systems to provide better protection, enforcement of current laws, and less red tape/a faster process for loving families who want to adopt.

Jesus urged us to watch out for our children. Here it is in His own words:
Matthew 19: 13-14 “Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’
Mark 9: 36-37 “He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.’ “
