I say this because my sister, the step mom to my nephew could not legally make any decisions when he was in the hospital in a coma. They had to wait for my BIL to get there. So unless they changed the Law the "step parent" does not have the same rights as a DNA parent.

So I would list the "step parent" as guardian.
