Parenting is never easy. Gay and lesbian couples face special questions and concerns. Should they adopt, use surrogates, artificial insemination or conception by one partner? How will the two partners handle the traditional roles of mother and father? How can gay and lesbian parents help their growing children deal with teasing and homophobia at school? And how can they get legal protection to ensure that both parents have equal rights and responsibilities? Gay Parenting provides clear, direct answers to these questions and more. This insightful, thoroughly researched guide offers sage advice for same-sex families in every stage, from making the decision to have children to dealing with embarrassed teenagers. Discover the ways same-sex parents should accent family pride to deal with being more visibly out. Explore the options for bringing children into your lives, including adoption, fostering, surrogacy and donor insemination. Learn how to handle other people's reactions, from the delivery room to the PTA and from extended families and the community. Noted authors Shana Priwer and Cynthia Phillps, parents of three, give gay and lesbian parents the practical tools they need to help their children grown up in a happy and healthy family environment.
