Florida waits on adoption decision

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Sometimes Martin Gill forgets what day it is. And then he starts to feel stressed and anxious and realizes, Oh, this must be Wednesday.

Wednesday, between 10:30 and 10:45 a.m., is when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit in Miami releases its rulings on its Web site.

Any Wednesday now, the Court of Appeals will release its ruling on whether Florida's ban on gay adoption is constitutional. Any Wednesday now, Gill will learn whether he gets to keep the two foster children he and his partner have been raising for the past five years, and want to adopt.

"I'm confident we will win, but not so confident that I'm not nervous on those Wednesday mornings," said Gill, 48, a flight attendant who lives in North Miami.
