The End of the Gay Adoption Ban in Florida?

September 24th, 2010 No comments

Very likely. In an “extra” piece just published over at 365gay, I analyze and comment on a ruling Wednesday by the Florida appellate court that struck down the state’s absurd ban on adoption by gay and lesbian parents. I even offer a brief comment  on my personal experience with the adoption bureaucracy in Philly.

Now word comes  in that the state is unlikely to appeal. If it doesn’t  this is over unless another state appellate court some day comes to a contrary conclusion — not likely. And in any event, the adoptive parents in this case can now know the peace they deserve.

After this week’s DADT debacle  in DC, I needed a happy ending.
