Surrogacy Was The Way: Twenty Intended Mothers Tell Their Stories by Zara Griswald – This book takes a look at the intended parents perspective of surrogacy and is very helpful for both surrogates and intended parents going through surrogacy. It looks at the details that people don’t want to talk about. Surrogacy is a beautiful way to achieve pregnancy, but there isn’t a resource for intended parents on what to expect. Anyone who  is involved in gestational surrogacy, whether you are the intended parents, the surrogate, or family members, should read this book. AFTH Price $14.00

The Complete Lesbian and Gay Parenting Guide by Arlene Istar Lev- This book is one of the most inclusive LGBT parenting manuals out there. I highly recommend it for LGBT parents and anyone thinking about starting a family. It is an engaging read, full of funny stories and information. It is also one of the only books I’ve read that has been truly inclusive of bisexual, transgender and gender-variant families. AFTH $17.00

Adopting and Advocating for the Special Needs Child by Rita Law & L. Anne Babb – Although definitions vary special needs children include those with mental, physical, and emotional disabilities and those with problems due to their age, sibling status, race, and such risk factors as exposure to drugs in utero. For parents interested in a special needs child and just beginning the adoption process, this book answers questions you may never have known to ask while clarifying the mysteries of the adoption system. Babb and Law clearly explain the most important information and most critical emotional issues which pre-adoptive parents need to consider.  AFTH price $25.00
