Two Moms Get Very Good News In France

Five months after a law was passed to allow equal marriage and adoption rights in France, two lesbian women will be the first same-sex couple to officially adopt children together.

The couple, who are being identified by local media outlets as Caroline and Pascale A., were married back in June, shortly after French President Francois Hollande signed marriage equality into law.

On Thursday the women received approval for one wife’s two biological children, Laure and Lise, to be adopted by the other wife. Both children are reportedly the result of artificial insemination by an unknown donor or donors.

The announcement was celebrated by the Association of Gay and Lesbian Parents and Future Parents, which released a statement saying that from now on, children may hear in school hallways: “Two moms or two dads, it’s possible!”

Congratulations to the two moms and their kids!

      Note toWww the editor of Queerty: there is no such thing as a lesbian woman. It’s like saying ‘green trees’. The gender is inherent in the word ‘lesbian’.
