    All You Need is Love

    I¿m not a big reader ¿ can barely keep up with the newspaper and my work stuff. One reason I liked this book is that people like me can make time for it. It¿s short, to the point, and got me crying at least twice during the first three chapters. Like the author I¿m a single gay guy still figuring out gay men, hoping for that monogamous never-ending relationship. This book showed that although being a father would probably be easier if part of a couple, the biggest qualification is a strong desire to be a father. Clearly not all men (gay or straight) are cut out for it, but Kevin proves that one¿s sexual orientation does not bear on his ability to be a dad. If I adopt I will pick up this book, probably cry again as I extract just the how-to parts, unable to avoid parts that choked me up. It¿s a great primer - one that doesn¿t overwhelm you with too much detail yet has all the necessities. Think of the barriers Kevin had ¿ (1) gay, (2) single, (3) male, (4) adopting in a faraway developing country (5) doing it a second time. This man clearly has guts and, you¿ll see from all his preparation, was made to be a father - a role model. Through his story and guide, he makes easy what till now I would not have thought possible. Although the book¿s target is gay men, it's an inspiration for anyone contemplating parenthood.
