Personal Note From The Author "As a first-time dad, I had no idea what awaited me in the first few months of fatherhood. Life was busy enough helping out my wife where I could, busting my butt at work, and trying to plan for our future. I had little time to talk, listen or read about becoming a dad. In hindsight, that was a mistake. I should have made the time because so much happens so quickly and had I just been a tad prepared for the first few months, it would have been smooth sailing. Instead it took many months for me to find my groove. When my wife announced she was pregnant with our second child, I decided that I wasn t going to wait this time around. So, I created this book to help my fellow man, a strategy that will give you the important things to know and some fun ideas you can do that will show you how to be that Super Dad you aspire to be."

Publisher: Mango Media Inc.
Category: Young Adult Nonfiction
If you are thinking of becoming a gay dad ─ or if you are already a gay dad ─ this book is for you! Are you ready to have kids? More and more gay men are turning to adoption and surrogacy to start their own families. An estimated two million American LBGTQ people would like to adopt and an estimated 65,000 adopted children are living with a gay parent. In 2016, The Chicago Tribune reported that 10 to 20 percent of donor eggs went to gay men expanding their families via surrogacy, and in many places the numbers were up 50 percent from the previous five years. Gay parenting: Having a kid is like coming out all over again, on a daily basis, especial if you have an infant. Was coming out stressful for you? It’s about to get more intense and you will have a child watching your every move and listening to your every word. If you stutter or pause, they may pick up on your discomfort and could start to feel like something is wrong about their family unit. The Ultimate Guide For Gay Dads is jam packed with parenting tips and advice to help you build confidence and become the awesome gay dad you were meant to be! How Is This Parenting Guide Different From Others?

It covers topics like how to find LGBT friendly pediatricians, how to find LGBT friendly schools, how to childproof your home with style, how to answer awkward and prying questions about your family from strangers, examples for what two-dad families can do on Mother’s Day, and much more. The book also includes parenting tips and advice from pediatricians, school educators, lawyers, and other same-sex parents. Top LGBT parenting expert: Bestselling author Eric Rosswood covers every aspect of fatherhood for gay men in this essential guide to growing your family in the post-DOMA era.
