VA board keeps adoption policy unchanged

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Gay and unmarried couples still won't be able to adopt in the state of Virginia.

The Virginia Social Services Board rejected proposed regulations that would have changed current policy on Wednesday.

Right now, Virginia allows adoption only by married couples and singles, regardless of sexual orientation.

But it does not allow unmarried couples to adopt.
