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.''
