The child goes to the female who birthed the child as sole custody, but the sperm donor doesn't have to pay support.

Rationale: The only thing that can be said with certainty is that the baby was carried by someone--the so called lesbian birth mother. We don't know what/how the sperm donor will do as a father figure or even if he will reliably continue to pay support. The lesbian husband brought nothing to this party, so she's out. Left with a child to raise with no visible means of support, perhaps the lesbian birth mother will do the right thing and give up the baby for adoption to a male-female household--for the good of the child. One can only hope.
