Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Any lesbian couple even just thinking of having a baby should read this!
Some of the stories are funny, some made me cry but what they all have in common is that the characters really bring to life their experiences of motherhood (bio and non-bio) and make starting a lesbian family feel more familiar to me.
This book raises many lessons learnt as well as common themes among some of the stories.
I am very grateful for the heads up of what my significant other (the non-bio mother of child 1) and I can expect.
