An Ontario court has ruled a boy can legally have two mom’s and a dad.
TORONTO — An Ontario boy can legally have two mothers and a father, the province’s highest court ruled Tuesday.
The same-sex partner of the child’s biological mother went to court seeking to also be declared a mother of the boy.
After hearing arguments in 2003, Superior Court Justice David Aston dismissed the application saying he didn’t have the jurisdiction to rule in the case.
Court was told the child has three parents: his biological father and mother (identified in court documents as B.B. and C.C., respectively) and C.C.’s partner, the appellant A.A.

A.A. and C.C. have been in a stable same-sex union since 1990. In 1999, they decided to start a family with the assistance of their friend B.B.
The two women would be the primary caregivers of the child, but they believed it would be in the child’s best interests that B.B. remain involved in the child’s life.
How wonderful for this child to have such caring parents.
