Becoming Dads: A Gay Couple's Journey to Adoption

by Pablo Fernández
£8.95   paperback  CoramBAAF (2011)

Becoming Dads: A Gay Couple This is the story of Pablo and Mike, and their journey to becoming adopters. Set against a contemporary backdrop of diverse perceptions – both encouraging as well as hostile, as to whether gay men should adopt, Pablo’s diarised narrative tracks this journey starting from their own initial doubts about whether or not they would be accepted and approved (they didn’t know of any other gay couple who had adopted), through to the positive affirmations they receive. They tackle the process with commitment and determination – the preparation, assessment and waiting – till they become the proud dads of a young boy.
Throughout this honest and inspiring account, Pablo describes the ups and downs, the bureaucracy, the milestones, the doubts, the frustrations and the happy times, all in the hope that his experience will help anyone else who is thinking of going through the adoption process or wants to know how it feels. Becoming Dads is the 14th title in the Our Story series, which explores adoption and fostering experiences as told by adopters and foster carers.
