A lesbian whose adoption request was recently denied by Puerto Rico's Supreme Court is appealing the ruling. The woman's partner gave birth to a girl, now 12, through in vitro fertilization. Attorney Nora Vargas represents the woman and said Wednesday that it is in the child's best interest for the woman to adopt the girl as the second parent.
