When enough of them are pulled they'll block your ISP and close you down. Then you'll have to find something else to masturbate with.

That is why you post here isn't it?

Amen to that! I had a lesbian couple who were friends for about 10 years. They asked me if I would be a donor, so they could have a child. I pondered that question for about 2 weeks, and finally decided I didn't want to have any part in it. I informed them as gently as I could, and explained my reasons. They took offense, and they haven't talked to me since. In light of this story, I'm happy I didn't do it. They broke up after about 5 years after that, and I could very well have been stuck paying for a baby's upbringing. I'm really happy I dodged that bullet. Lesson to be learned is to check out ALL the legalities before entering into such an arrangement.
The way it is handled is that the non-bioparent adopts the other's child. Part of that process is the donor formally surrenders all parental rights. Once the adoption is finalized, no case can be made.

In Arizona, 2nd parent adoption is not legal. Both bio parents must give up their parental rights in order for the child to be adopted. 2 people must be legally married in order to adopt jointly. We had to go to other states to ensure both of our names appear on the birth certificates of our children.

With the money all the legal stuff took, we could have put them through college.

In Maryland we used 2nd parent adoption. In California we used a surrogacy contract.

So you're saying that in Arizona a widow's second husband cannot adopt any of her children?

That all sounds fine, but when this all happened with me it was not so easy. Remember this all took place in the 80's in Missouri. So I think, in retrospect, that what I did was right for the circumstance at the time. Today I might make a different decision, but I highly doubt the situation will come up.

All of you are barking up the wrong tree.

The loophole the state is using to go after the "father" is that they didn't use an IVF Doctor to conceive.

The IVF industry is very lucrative and doesn't want any competition from "home brewers"

Shhh, you're not supposed to know that; the official reason for this loophole is to prevent fraud.

If they're married he can. Gay couples can't.
