The Family Law Act of 2013 in British Columbia allows for more than two parents to be listed on a child’s birth certificate. Now, newborn Della Wolf is believed to be the first child with three legal parents: her two moms, who are in a committed relationship, and the biological father, who is more info
a close family friend.
A similar law was recently signed into effect in California, so it’ll be interesting to see whether such laws catch on in other places. I tend to believe that the more loving people in a child’s life, the better, and so I’m definitely keeping an eye on this phenomenon.
