My wife and I are about halfway through this book, and so far, it's been very relatable and has helped us both feel more confident in our decision to become parents. The book does seem a little dated, and some of the social ideas in it may not be as relevant to me, but I can still very much appreciate the stories in each chapter and the personal experiences that the author shares. This book is great because it doesn't tell you what is right and what is wrong, it just helps you to explore your own feelings about parenting, and find ways to overcome insecurities about your choice to parent. Overall, a great read for gay people and gay allies.

Great stories and emphatically shared a nice source of support for raising a nontraditional family in a straight world..The experience of parenting is commonly overlooked in psychological theory, and lesbians and gay..And many other parenting guides ....Years in Practice: 30+ Years School: New York University Year Graduated: 1975. 40 years in practice, I concentrated a significant portion of - practice (though not all) in the LGBT community. I was a pioneer in advocating for alternative family structures. I'm also open to and knowledgeable about a wide range of sexual and gender issues and identities.

This book was informative and an easy read. As a lesbian parent of a small child,I was really looking for a book on lesbian parenting. This book includes a great deal about becoming a parent so I would recommend this book to gay or lesbian folks who are thinking about becoming parents as the chapters on adoption, co-parenting, donor insemination, etc. were well written and seemed to cover just about every aspect that goes into the decision to be a parent and how to become one. Even though only 1/2 of the book covered actual parenting and some of it included the authors heartbreaking personal experiences, I found the information to be very helpful to me as a lesbian parent.
