Adoption by partners in a same-sex life partnership - Du Toit and Another v Minister of Welfare and Population Development 2001 (12) BCLR 1225 (T)
The applicants in this case were partners in a same-sex (lesbian) life partnership. Both applicants had been approved as suitable prospective adoptive parents and the adoption of two siblings had been finalised, but since the Child Care Act 74 of 1983 does not make provision for the joint adoption of a child by the members of a same-sex life partnership, the second applicant was the sole adoptive parent.
