Adoption gives woman 'full and unassailable' parental rights, judge says
NEW YORK — A judge in New York City has granted the adoption petition of a woman whose egg was implanted in her domestic partner and resulted in the birth of a son.
Surrogate Court Judge Kristin Booth Glen says she is convinced that the woman, identified only as Mona A., is already the legal parent of the 15-month-old boy.
But in her ruling on Friday, April 10, the judge said the adoption will give Mona A. her “full and unassailable” parental rights.
