Much needed and beautiful book,
This review is from: And Baby Makes More (Paperback)
I don't know of any other book out there on this particular topic, and as a pregnant single lesbian with a known donor (good friend), this book is such a gift. It contains a great range of stories from very diverse perspectives (lesbian couples, single women, a gay male couple using a surrogate, etc), all thoughtful and well written. As a woman, I especially appreciate that many of the authors included are the donors themselves. These are mostly happy stories, which is a nice change from a lot of what you read in other books about being wary of known donors because they can turn on you and demand custody. There are one or two very well-written essays about that happening, but they are not horror stories, they are about families sticking together.
Much needed book! I would recommend it to anyone using or thinking of using a known donor, or anyone who has friends or family doing this who'd like to get some insight.
