This is both a good book for lesbian parents, and a good parenting book in general. The first half focused on issues exclusive to or more pronounced in lesbian families--coming out, bio vs. non-bio moms, divorce, racial issues/interracial families, and other things like that. The second half was more of a basic parenting book with some LGBT flavor to it.
I like that this book addressed a good deal of gay issues, while at the same time admitted that sometimes being a gay family doesn't have anything to do with the majority of parenting. I mean really, when you're unsure of how to properly care for your newborn, your 6 year old refuses to eat his vegetables, or your teenager is using marijuana, do you really think your sexuality has anything to do with it? But luckily they DO cover some lesbian issues in the "parenting" section like children asking about paternity, dealing with homophobia in your children's school or society, and defining the role of the non-biological/legal mother. I liked the anecdotes and stories from real parents as well.
This was a good book but I think it IS definitely in need of an update. The fact that gay marriage and rights have made such strides since this was published makes some points a bit obsolete. I also think that now more lesbian families are children born to/adopted to lesbians to start with, not children a woman had within a heterosexual marriage before she came out. It also would have been nice if they addressed more adoption issues.
