The Trump administration last week protected a Christian foster care agency from being forced to violate its religious beliefs, bringing hope to child placing organizations across the country. Religious foster and adoption agencies have come under fire recently for only placing children in homes that share the organizations’ beliefs. Some agencies have closed their doors rather than capitulate to the demands of local or state governments that they work with families of different religious backgrounds or worldviews, particularly LGBT couples.
