Florida Ban on Gay Adoption Found Unconstitutional
For the past thirty years Florida has enforced a blanket ban on adoption by gay people, the last state to do so. Homosexual couples, though, are legally able to be foster parents. In Florida Department of Children and Families v. In re: Matter of Adoption of X.X.G. and N.R.G. one such set of foster parents were able to adopt two boys they had been fostering for several years. Hard on the heels of the case overturning Prop 8 in California this is definitely a victory for gay rights advocates.
