Hey peeps (I have no idea where it occurred to me to use the word “peeps,” but it just sprang out of me, and I’m going with it) — Dana over at Mombian has been kind enough to promote And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents, and Our Unexpected Families with a giveaway of not one, not two, but three copies of the book over the next three weeks. To enter today’s draw, visit Mombian and leave a comment that answers the following question:
Many of the essays in the book focus on the language we use for our families. How do you and your children (if you have any) refer to the members of your family—yourself and/or your co-parent(s), donor, birth mother, grandparents, or anyone else you consider part of your close family circle? If you don’t have kids, tell us what you call your own parents or what you think you’d like your kids to call you.
