In late 2010, a pair of gay foster dads in Key West heard of a proposed motion picture that sounded a lot like their own legal fight to adopt two sons. “The film mirrors our case here in Florida,” said Wayne LaRue Smith, who, with partner Dan Skahen in 2008, became the first gay men in Florida allowed to adopt. Smith and Skahen met with director Travis Fine and, along with Miami attorney Steven Kozlowski, co-produced the movie Any Day Now, which co-stars Broadway and TV actor Alan Cumming and opens Friday nationally and in South Florida. “I want people to see it because it really moves people,” said Kozlowski, who with Miami Beach attorney Elizabeth Schwartz helped represent Smith and Skahen in 1999 at the beginning of their Florida adoption fight.
