The Family Court recognized lesbian partners as joint mothers for the first time on Sunday.
The couple, Tal and Avital Yarous-Hakak, received their adoption orders and are listed as the mothers of their three children.
The orders were issued in light of a High Court of Justice ruling on the matter, according to which adoption laws allow the process, even if the both partners are of the same gender.
The Yarous-Hakaks expressed satisfaction from the decision and noted that this is a new precedent being set for families in similar situations.
