Adoption by Lesbians and Gay Men: a New Dimension in Family Diversity. David Brodzinsky & Adam Pertman, Editors, $46.95

The practice of adoption has changed dramatically over the past half century, with profound implications for children and families. Perhaps the most remarkable and controversial transformation during this time has been the growing willingness of adoption professionals to place children with sexual-minority individuals and couples. Yet, despite considerable research showing that lesbians and gay men can make good parents, they continue to experience difficulties and barriers in many parts of the country in their efforts to adopt and raise children. Indeed, while progress in this area has been significant, it has been impeded by the homophobia and heterosexist attitudes of adoption professionals and the judiciary; by numerous stereotypes and misconceptions about parenting by lesbians and gay men, and by a lack of adequate guidelines and training for establishing best practice standards in working with this rapidly growing group of adoptive parents.

ADOPTION BY LESBIANS AND GAY MEN explores the gamut of historical, legal, sociological, psychological, social casework, and personal issues related to adoption by sexual-minority individuals and couples. Leading experts in a variety of fields address and often shatter — the controversies, myths, and misconceptions hindering efforts by these individuals to adopt and raise children. What makes this book all the more valuable is that it provides insights and specific recommendations for establishing empirically validated best practices for working with an important sector of our society, for treating all prospective and current parents fairly and equally, and, perhaps most importantly, for increasing a still largely untapped resource for providing families for children who need them.


And Baby Makes 4. Judith Benjamin & Judith Freeman, $16.95

This delightful book is about a child with 2 moms who is expecting a sibling. Written for gay and lesbian families, the book is also a wonderful addition for parents and schools interested in having books about non-traditional families on their shelves.    


And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents and Our Unexpected Families. Edited by Susan Goldberg & Chlöe Brushwood Rose, $19.95

A quirky, funny, and occasionally heartbreaking collection of personal essays, this book offers an intimate look at the relative risks and unexpected rewards of queer, do-it-yourself baby-making, and the ways in which families are formed in the process. The contributors — donors, biological and non-bio parents, and their children — offer provocative, nuanced insights into what it means to be or to use a known donor, and how queer families are being re-conceived to include new roles, new rules, and kinship ties that transcend biology.

Blood, Marriage, Wine and Glitter. S. Bear Bergman, $18.95

The celebrated essayist sheds necessary (and humorous) light on gender, sexuality, and family.

S. Bear Bergman is an acclaimed writer and lecturer who travels regularly across North America to speak on trans issues. Bear’s first two books, Butch Is a Noun and The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You, are considered essential texts on the subject of trans life. In his third essay collection, Bear enters, describes, and rearranges our ideas about family as a daughter, husband, father, and friend. In Bear's extended family "orchard," drag sisters, sperm-donor's parents, Sparkles and other relations provide more branches of love, support, and sustenance than a simple family tree. Defiantly queer yet full of tenderness and hilarity, BLOOD, MARRIAGE, WINE AND GLITTER is a beautifully thought-provoking book that redefines the notion of what family is and can be.

Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight? Confessions of a Gay Dad. Dan Bucatinsky, $16.99

In 2005, Dan Bucatinsky and his partner, Don, found themselves in an L.A. delivery room, decked out in disposable scrubs from shower cap to booties, to welcome their adopted baby girl—launching their frantic yet memorable adventures into fatherhood. Two and a half years later, the same birth mother — a heroically generous, pack-a-day teen with a passion for Bridezilla marathons and Mountain Dew — delivered a son into the couple’s arms. Bucatinsky moves deftly from sidesplitting stories about where kids put their fingers to the realization that his athletic son might just grow up to be straight and finally to a reflection on losing his own father just as he’s becoming one. Bucatinsky’s soul-baring and honest stories tap into that all-encompassing, and very human, hunger to be a parent — and the life-changing and often ridiculous road to getting there.


Donovan's Big Day. Lesléa Newman, illustrated by Mike Dutton, $17.99 (ages 4-9)

In this celebration of family and marriage, Lesléa Newman captures the joy and excitement of a wedding day, while Mike Dutton's humorous illustrations perfectly capture the day's events through the eyes of a child.

Families of Value: Personal Profiles of Pioneering Lesbian and Gay Parents. Robert Bernstein, $20.50

Although many attitudes are changing, gay and lesbian parents and their children need protection and support as the heated cultural battle over same-sex unions continues to escalate. Families of Value offers a poignant defense of families with same-sex parents, and it does so primarily through the powerful use of real-life examples. Robert Bernstein, author of the acclaimed Straight Parents, Gay Children, presents intimate portraits of pioneer families with gay and lesbian parents who are leading the charge in the struggle to bring about social change. Their unique stories, in turn hard-hitting and affecting, portray the resistance these brave parents have faced, their views of the current cultural climate and, most importantly, the intense passion and dedication that they have devoted to raising sound, healthy, and well-adjusted children.

Molly's dilemma, sensitively explored in words and art, shows readers that even if a family is different from others, it can still be happy, loving, and real.

Combining moving narratives and insightful analysis, Queering Reproduction reveals how medical technology reconfigures social formations, individual subjectivity, and notions of kinship.

Sarah Kate Ellis, a high-powered magazine executive, and Kristen Henderson, a laid-back rock star, decide it's time to start their family. After determining that Sarah should get pregnant first while Kristen works on her band's new CD, they head to a fertility doctor to start the process. But after months of drug treatments, miscarriages, and heartbreak, Kristen decides to start trying, too. That's when the utterly improbable happens: Sarah and Kristen find out that they are both pregnant — and are due three days apart.

Overjoyed by the news that they are both expecting, Sarah and Kristen are also overwhelmed by all that lies ahead. The difficulties of having two pregnant women under the same roof are multiplied by the legal and social obstacles of being a gay couple. This touching, modern family adventure will entertain, enlighten, and resonate with readers of all stripes.


Transforming Law's Family: the Legal Recognition of Planned Lesbian Motherhood. Fiona Kelly, $29.95

In the past few decades, gays and lesbians, along with their families, have become more visible members of Canadian society, enjoying increasing levels of legal recognition. In TRANSFORMING LAW'S FAMILY, Fiona Kelly explores the complex issues encountered by planned lesbian families as they work to define their parental rights, roles, and family structures within the normatively heterosexual tenets of family law. 

While Canadian courts recognize lesbian parenthood, they do so only to the degree that lesbian families are equivalent to heterosexual families in form and structure. Issues that are largely unique to planned lesbian families, such as the legal status of known sperm donors or non-biological mothers, remain undefined within the existing legal framework. Drawing on numerous interviews with lesbian mothers, TRANSFORMING LAW'S FAMILY sheds light on changing definitions of family and suggests a model for law reform that allows for the legal recognition of alternative forms of parentage. 

The first empirical study in Canada to address the legal dimensions of planned lesbian families, this book makes an important contribution to family law, queer studies, and law reform literature.

Who's Your Mama? The Unsung Voices of Women and Mothers. Yvonne Bynoe, Editor, $21.50

From the adoption process for a gay couple, a feminist juggling the roles of activist and mother, to a mother's celebration of her own vibrant sexuality, the book explores the intersection between motherhood and the facets of the authors' lives, which include race, class, sexuality, politics and personal tragedy. Who's Your Mama offers the perspectives of women from all cross-sections of society who are actively engaged in crafting identities and family structures  that speak practically to their personal beliefs, intimate relationships, and socio-economic realities.
