Summary Same-sex couples are faced with many options when choosing to have children today. Author Eric Rosswood guides prospective LGBT parents to explore these five popular options: adoption, surrogacy, foster care, co-parenting, and assisted reproduction. Each section includes a description of the specific family-building approach, followed by personal stories from same-sex couples and individuals who have chosen and gone through that particular journey. The appendix contains important legal issues to consider and questions, to ask before deciding to move forward.
