DETROIT  (WKZO) --  A lesbian couple raising three special needs children, who have been denied permission to jointly adopt them because they aren’t married, have challenged Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage.  The judge hearing the case was due to release a decision yesterday but it’s been put on hold.

Judge Bernard Friedman is waiting on the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court on the legality of same-sex marriage based on a California case.  A couple from Hazel Park began their effort to change Michigan's law on the adoption of children by gay couples. 

However, they later decided to try to reverse the 2004 constitutional amendment in Michigan that declares marriage is between one man and one woman.
