What People are Saying About This

"Skillfully moves the dialogue from whether or not we should have children to how it is we actually, actively do this thing of being families. . . . Makes important distinctions between the health of our families internally and the effects of the outside world on our development as parents and on our children's development. Johnson and O'Connor engage readers to objectively view our families, the bonds we form, and the egalitarian models that we create for our children without apology and with clarity and respect for this generation of intentional families that has the potential to change the world."

-Aimee Gelnaw,Executive Director, Family Pride Coalition

"Serves to advance the understanding of lgbt families in the U.S. today, and helps provide guideposts for members of same-sex households as they pioneer new family formations."

-Terry Boggis,Director, Center Kids, The family program of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center, New York

"Perhaps many heterosexual couples with children and less than harmonious households could learn something."

-New York Times,

"An effortless how-to book that would be recommended hand-me-down reading for prospective same-sex parents from those who've fingered the pages within."
