Gallery | Martin Gill and sons celebrate end of gay-adoption battle as McCollum decides not to appeal court decision

002

Frank Martin Gill and his sons, above in Halloween costumes, celebrate the decision Friday by Attorney General Bill McCollum not to appeal a court decision ending Florida's 33-year ban against gays adopting.

"This is the first time I felt a sense of closure, finality," Gill told me Friday night during an ACLU reception at the Shore Club hotel in South Beach. "I really felt relieved for the first time -- and a sense of pride for what we accomplished for the state of Florida.''
