Lesbian and Gay Fostering and Adoption: Extraordinary Yet Ordinary
Stephen Hicks, Janet McDermott
J. Kingsley, 1999 - Social Science - 205 pages
Very little material exists on the experiences of gay men and lesbians who have adopted, fostered or provided respite care for children. This book presents a collection of personal accounts, based on interviews and written testimonies, by lesbian and gay parents from many different social and ethnic backgrounds. Their stories record good and bad experiences, but overall, the accounts are positive and emphasise the rewards of parenting. This book will dispel a lot of misconceptions: it will also be useful to gay men and lesbians who are thinking about adopting or fostering children.
