Martha Davis, left, and Lisa Eisenpresser, with their daughter Kate, 4, and Angela Courtin take turns reading a book at Lisa and Angelas home. Families look a lot of different ways, Eisenpresser says by way of explanation when Kate's little friends ask about her three mommies.
On a leafy drive in west Los Angeles, at a newly renovated home with cathedral ceilings and a backyard pool, 4-year-old Kate Eisenpresser-Davis' friends have been known to pose an intriguing question: "Why does Kate have three mommies?"
Lisa Eisenpresser, 44, and her partner, Angela Courtin, 38, share custody of Kate with Eisenpresser's ex-partner.
When asked to describe their life, Eisenpresser and Courtin respond with the same word: "Normal." Days are spent searching for the right balance between work and home, and zigzagging through Mar Vista to meetings, school and gymnastics.
Courtin is pregnant. Kate will soon have a sister, Phoebe, conceived from Eisenpresser's egg and sperm from a donor the same 6-foot-1 Harvard grad, who scored a 1580 on the SAT, who served as Kate's donor.

One big happy screwed up family. Poor kid and now she’s going to get a sibling to join the mess.
How can abnormal people know what normal is?
Oh brother.......I don’t know what to say!
Sodom and Gomorrah keep coming to mind. Waiting for the pillars of salt...
Is there any research on kids growing up in gay “families”? I know that most of the prison population come from single parent homes, but I have no idea how bad the “two mommies” or “two daddies” kids will turn out.
I’m not sure, but growing up in any non-traditional home is very stressful on kids.
Three women getting along??? I doubt it.
Lisa Eisenpresser, 44, and her partner, Angela Courtin, 38, share custody of Kate with Eisenpresser's ex-partner [Martha Davis]... Courtin is pregnant... the same 6-foot-1 Harvard grad, who scored a 1580 on the SAT, who served as Kate's donor.Shows what good an SAT score is.
So, when Lisa and Angela split up, and each of them has a new “partner,” will Kate and Phoebe have five “mommies”? Since everyone who’s ever been a sex partner of a bio-mom is granted “parent” status these days, I suppose there could be even more, depending on how quickly they partner and un-partner ...
I hope he ends up paying lots and lots of child support.
Homosexuals practicing eugenics - hmmm.
More like Heather has three daughters from hell, irresponsible, squatting blood sucking critters pretending to be moms. Poor child, exploited and denied.
It must be great when they all get their periods at the same time, or complain about one having one too many child or what not. This is not going to end well.
If the father is so great, then why is he not teaching to read? Oh, I get it, he is a man, you know, he should not get any representation other than donating some meaningless DNA.
I’m probably going to get blasted for saying this, but I don’t care if she has lesbian mothers or 2, or 3, or even 8 same sex parents. I’ve seen the headlines of the parents that have beaten their kid to death for breaking the T.V., drowned their kids because a new boyfriend didn’t want kids, microwaved their infant, sold their daughter’s body in exchange for drugs, or even kicked their child to death while onlookers did nothing.
So my only question is this... Is she loved? Does she feel loved? If so then I just don’t care about the sexual orientation of the parents anymore. That’s the lion’s job to judge and not mine. I don’t have to condone it, but I’m not put here to condemn it either when so much else is so much worse in this world. If the child feels loved and the parents love the child then I’m happy enough to turn my attention to other matters for the time.
As a conservative it’s sometimes difficult for me to see the grand plan when so much has turned to crap in this world. I worry over my children’s future non-stop and watch as liberals tear down everything that is right in this world. It seems worrying over the least of what they do (in this matter at least) would be a waste of energy I should be directing elsewhere.
It is no wonder the state of Kaliphornia is about to be the first state to go bankrupt.
Illinois will be the second state.
It took more that three queer women to get one pregnant! Where is this child’s biological father?
The traditional family sounds kind of icky and primitive, according to the above description from the writer of this article.
Sure. The "research" shows the kids turn out perfectly "normal"--as defined by the same people who commissioned and wrote this article in the LA Times. Of course, anyone with a grain of sense knows that this is not normal at all but WEIRD and INSANE. To inflict it on a child is evil.
I understand your post. I hope these children are loved and THE priority in life for their moms.
The girls will miss their father and everything a father gives to a daughter. Girls learn how to relate to half of the world’s population (men) through that first primary relationship. Three mommies cannot make up for this no matter how much they love the children.
