Gay man and two lesbians on US toddler’s birth certificate

From The Christian Institute

A toddler in Florida is set to have three parents on her birth certificate after a gay man and two lesbians fought a lengthy legal battle.

Earlier this month a judge approved the set up which leaves one of the lesbians with “sole parental responsibility” and the other woman as a legal adoptive parent.

The gay man is recognised as the father by the State. 

The dispute came about after the man, Massimiliano “Massimo” Gerina, provided his sperm for the lesbian couple to use, on a verbal agreement.

The lesbian couple have had a homosexual wedding in Connecticut – something which is not recognised in Florida.
