Format: Paperback
"Just a Mom" was a tremendous help to me when I was struggling to overcome my ignorance about my daughter's homosexuality. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a gay loved one.

Format: Paperback
This is a very heart warming, comforting book to gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transexuals or even to those who find themselves different among the majority in society. The book discussed about Mama Betty and Ellen's experiences and journey together on her coming out and how it made their relationship stronger. This book is greatly recommended to everyone to see the bigger picture of this issue about human sexuality. Hopefully, it opens the minds and hearts of those who will read it.. like the way Mama Betty opened her mind and heart about her daughter, Ellen. Love is what's most important after all.
