After five years of legal battles, Martin Gill and his partner recently won the right to adopt their two sons. Now the family has received a once-in-a-lifetime invitation to attend a holiday celebration at the White House.
This will be the sixth year the couple and their sons will be together as a family, but the first year the state of Florida legally recognizes them as such.
“It’s time to be with the family,” one of their sons said. “I love my dads.”
Frank “Martin” Gill and his partner have been foster parents for 10 children but when a South Florida circuit judge granted their request to adopt two boys, the state immediately appealed under the law forbidding adoption by gays.
