Yeah, I actually love this depiction. It portrays them as real people with real struggles that are about FAMILY... not just about sex, which is what poly can be sensationalized as. And it takes the focus from "omg, is it right for them to have multiple relationships??" to "omg, is it right to value a chance at a biological child over your own partner??" (which, hey, that could legitimately be a tough call... I would counsel them to open up the triad personally, why do they have to be exclusive?),making poly itself a non-controversy in the end. Awesome.
