Format: Hardcover
I loved how this simple, age-appropriate story told of how a gay male couple adopted their son, communicating the love and hope that they share as a family with humor, honesty, and integrity. The fact that the couple is white and their son is African American added another facet to the story, bringing a measure of visibility to the growing number of biracial, bicultural families in our society. The illustrations are playful and add an element of emotional depth to the straightforward narrative of how this family came to be. For me and my son, this book evoked laughter, curiosity and a sense of dignity - finally, a story about a family like mine, told in a way that all families can enjoy and identify with in one way or another.

EXCELLENT AND WONDERFUL! WAS WAITING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO BE WRITTEN FOR A WHILE. THE BOOK SHOWS THE LOVE BETWEEN A GAY/INTERRACIAL FAMILY THROUGH ADOPTION. THE PICTURES ARE COLORFUL/HUMOROUS. THE BOOK TEACHES CARING FOR A CHILD TO CHILDREN, LOVE, KINDNESS , HAPPINESS, ALOT OF POSITIVE ! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE OF ALL BACKGROUNDS. IT IS ALSO EASY/SIMPLE READING FOR CHILDREN WITH DECENT SIZE LETTERING. THERE AREN'T MANY BOOKS OUT THERE I CAN THINK OF ABOUT THIS TOPIC, I'M GLAD THE AUTHOR WAS BOLD ENOUGH TO WRITE ABOUT THIS TOPIC/HOPEFULLY THERE WILL BE A SEQUEL IN THE FUTURE.

Format: Hardcover
A refreshing story of how a beautiful child becomes part of a family with two Dads. More needs to be written about how so many of children find loving homes by being adopted by gay men.
Written from the child's point of view, the book is void of bias and preconceived ideas of the type of love and true bonding of family that two men can provide to a child.
Easy to read, with great colorful illustrations, the book is appropriate for children and adults, gay or straight... anyone who enjoys feeling warmth in their hearts and teaching love and acceptance of those around them.
