When I Saw This Headline, “Florida judge approves birth certificate listing three parents,” I thought “Frank Marshall Davis, Barack Obama, Sr. and Stanley Anne Dunham?” But no, it’s actually about a lesbian and her homosexual male hairdresser, who hatch a brilliant plan to make a baby for her to raise with her “partner.” You know the story. A gay guy, and two lesbians find an innovative use for a turkey baster, and hilarity ensues. Oh wait …that’s in the sitcom version. In real life, it turns into a bonanza for the lawyers. From Reuters:
A Florida judge has approved the adoption of a 22-month-old baby girl that will list three people as parents on her birth certificate — a married lesbian couple and a gay man.
The decision ends a two-year paternity fight between the couple and a friend of the women who donated his sperm to father the child but later sought a larger role in the girl’s life.
The ruling means the child’s birth certificate will include a biological father and both women as parents in an unusual arrangement approved recently by a Miami-Dade Circuit Court judge.
Maria Italiano, Cher Filippazzo , Massimiliano Gerina? Weren’t these people all characters on “The Jersey Shore?”
They say that after this two year legal battle, everyone has made nice and is prepared to enjoy birthdays and Thanksgiving together. Thanksgiving? I hope that they buy a brand new turkey baster before preparing that meal.
