of her family.

Isn't that wonderful?

That's wonderful, Mary.

Is that you?


- Is that your mommy?

- Yes.

- And who's that?

- That's my biological daddy.


Who's that?

That's my one honorary daddy,

and that's my other.

We all live



Everybody put the tops

back on your markers.

Take your drawings

up to the front.

You have 3 daddies?

That's weird.

- How come?

- Julie has 2 daddies,

but not at the same time.

- Why not?

- You can't have more than...

one father at a time living

with you. That's the law.

What's the role

of other women?

- None whatsoever.

- Can't say I've ever

seen any in the house.

- Strictly professional.

- Then you're gay.

- Is she kidding?

- Gay!

How many women

this month?

- That's hard to say.

- I need a calculator.

We have a strict rule,

no overnight guests...

while Mary's

in the house.

This is a most unique

family environment.

As a school


I've told the committee

in no uncertain terms,

that I was most

impressed by Mary.

I found her to be a

delightful and happy child.

- Yes, she is.

- Thank you.

However, I must warn you

she's coming to an age...

when even slight


can threaten her

sense of fitting in.

The littlest things:

A parent's accent, how they dress.

While we think of ourselves

as progressive,

I'd be less

than candid...

if I said that 3 men without

any legal responsibility,

didn't concern me

a great deal.

- We have responsibilities.

- I know what you're trying to say.

I should be the one

to respond.

I know some of the

children in this school,

and their parents.

Family life is not easy.

Of all the fathers,

stepfathers, half-fathers,

no 3 men support and love

a child like these 3 men.

There is nothing

they wouldn't do for her.
