A New Book for Gay Parents

Michael Adee of More Light Presbyterians has reviewed a new book, On Being a Gay Parent: Making a Future Together by Brett Webb-Mitchell.

I will order a copy and perhaps offer it as a Holy Union gift.
This is from the website:

A new practical how-to guide by Brett Webb-Mitchell was just published by Seabury Books. This book is a hands-on, down-to-earth, guide that answers the questions unique to the Christian gay parenting experience, On Being a Gay Parent is a mix of concrete information, illuminating anecdotes, and creative solutions. Covering ground you’re unlikely to find in other parenting books, Webb-Mitchell deals with issues such as:
  • How to come out to your kids
  • What to call either “Moms” or “Dads”
  • Navigating the school system and the challenges your children might face there
  • How the law around civil unions and same-sex marriages deals with children’s issues
  • Surviving the holiday, when complicated family structures typically get more so
  • And much more…
From running a household to handling a parent-teacher conference, and with an extensive resource section at the back, On Being a Gay Parent will answer the question you haven’t even thought to ask.
