The Connecticut Supreme Court, on January 7, 2011, held that a gay man, not biologically related to his twins, could have his name placed on their birth certificates establishing legal parentage over them along with the twin’s biological father.  This decision, if structured properly through an attorney, means that a gay family utilizing gestational surrogacy in Connecticut will no longer need to have the non-biological parent adopt the child in a second-parent adoption.
