    Suggested copy: “Thank you for making religious freedom a priority. Faith-based adoption agencies and foster care providers are helping to place children in forever homes and should not be discriminated against for their religious beliefs. Doing so would violate the First Amendment, and only add to the crisis of over 400,000 children in our nation who desperately need families. Please finalize this rule as is. Thank you.”
