About the book: 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-bio parents, and their children — offer provocative, nuanced insights into what it means to be or use a known donor — and how queer families are being reconceived to include new roles, new rules, and, sometimes, more than two parents.
