As this brief online essay observes, the litigation that produced the Supreme Court 2013 decision in Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl demonstrates why we are no closer to a definitive resolution of what to do when parents do not share assumptions about how to raise their child. The case illustrates the national lack of agreement on what makes someone a parent. At the core of these differences is the question of how to align parental behavior with the promotion of the child’s interest in stable and secure relationships.
