"And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents, and Our Unexpected Families" explores the phenomenon of the "known donor" in the queer family structure: what happens when would-be dyke moms or gay dads ask a friend or acquaintance to donate sperm or an egg, or to act as a surrogate?
"And Baby Makes More "pushes at the boundaries of current family conceptions. This quirky, funny, and occasionally heartbreaking collection of personal essays offers a front-row view into the relative risks and unexpected rewards of queer, do-it-yourself baby-making, and the ways in which families themselves are re-made in the process. The authors--donors, biological and non-biological parents, and their children--offer provocative, nuanced insights into what it means to be or use a known donorand how queer families are being reconceived to include new roles, new rules, and, sometimes, more than two parents.
