Mother is not recorded, but father is?

Now here is a confusing twist, the birth of Annie Matilda (junior):

1948/68093   Cupples   Annie Matilda Cupples Lye   Jemima Jane   Robert

Mother is listed as Jemima Jane?


Do we have the correct family here?  Am I missing something perhaps (totally possible!)?
EDIT: This is as OP states - adopted by Jemima and Robert - d'uh!

So regarding the real father, hmmmm .... my understanding is that under the Adult Adoption Act in NZ that only the person concerned is allowed to access their records; and that a birth certificate issued for the said person will always be the post adoption one.

Anyone else had first hand experience?

Might any 'Intention to Marry' records ever list both the birth and adoptive parents?   Or marriage register entry?

Would Annie (senior)'s funeral director entry contain previous marriages/relationships?

Or those of the children, their fathers?
