It was a bit of a family catch up for a Sunday lunch out. As well as babysitting Little Jo on Friday night when Sister and the Bone Doctor went to some Irish Australian footy match, we had the pleasure of seeing Little Jo a second time in three days.
I was somewhat disturbed to read in one of last weeks newspapers that the Bone Doctor has no legal right to make any decision on Little Jo's behalf. Should anything happen to Sister, then I would be the one to make the decisions.
This is being addressed by our lawmakers but the outcome is uncertain. It has already been sorted in most other Australian states. There is document Sister has organised that gives the Bone Doctor some rights, but this is most unsatisfactory situation. From the size of gay parents play groups which Little Jo occasionally attends, there are an awful lot of same sex parents out there and one of them has no right over their child.
Most unsatisfactory!!! My niece deserves better.
