INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:

  • “Too many children dream of a stable, loving family,” said Rep. Lewis.  “Many adults want to open their homes and their hearts, but they also are facing more and more barriers, because some officials can say they practice the wrong religion, love the wrong person, or are not married.  The Every Child Deserves a Family Act puts the happiness and well-being of our children front and center, engaging every possible match between solid families and children searching for a home.  We must each do our part to ensure that every young person and capable, aspiring parents are able to enjoy the dream of a loving, stable family together.” (Source: Rep Lewis, Press Release, 6/05/19)
