Gay adoption; your holiday travel plans

Adoptions by gay people just got a boost from a Florida judge.

The Miami court struck a big blow against one of the strictest bans on gay adoption in the U.S. The ruling says there was "no rational basis" for prohibiting gay people from adopting children.

This means a man in Miami will be allowed to adopt two young brothers he's cared for as foster children since 2004.

Attorneys for the state plan to appeal, and that will ultimately decide the fate of Florida's ban.

So, what do you think? Should the ruling be upheld and allow gay people to adopt? Should there be a ban like this in the first place?
