any

new parent or preparing parent know of any good baby book appropriate for a baby with 2 moms and that was adopted?

(before I typed it, I thought "maybe I shouldn't ask, cuz then it wont happen, but we need to prepare for when it does, but what if it doesn't, then I will have a baby book")

(but I typed it anyways)

(man, I need a therapist.)

ciw.

Edit- dearest m, thank you for your kind words... I should have clarified -- I mean a baby book that you paste stuff in and list things --- kinda like a scrap book :) xo

My Friends "The Girls", who you have seen, and us have a joke that we are no longer Gay/Lesbians, we are just parents. We hung up our "Gay Hats" years ago when we started having babies. I think you'll find, while walking through the park with your baby, that you are 99% exactly the same as the Straights walking their kids. I may be in the minority here( I am most of the time) but I would say that you don't need a book about two Moms raising a baby. In fact, I don't think you need any book at all. Just wing it! You'll be fine.
Your Friend, m.

My 2 cents: Go to www.twolives.com to see some great baby and other books for lgbtq families.

Also the books: ABC A family Alphabet Book and 123 A family counting books are GREAT! It was so cool for Alex as a toddler to "see" other 2 mom/dad families.

good thing you clarified. Cuz I thought the same thing...a book about how to do that. Aren't all baby books that you glue stuff in kind of the same? I haven't look at them in a long time.

A friend of mine put one together for same sex parents. I haven't ordereed mine yet, but it is a three ringed binder style and you can pick which pages you want in it, etc.

I'll drop her a line to see if she's still doing them. The order page is still up!

If you have any friends who are into scrapbooking you could request a custom book for your shower.

Congrats on your recent good news and best wishes as you go forward!
