Book review: If These Ovaries Could Talk
You’ve found the love of your life, you’ve gotten married and bought a house together, because nothing says “together forever” like a 30-year mortgage. Until you think about how great it would be to have 2.4 kids to go with your dog, cat, alpaca, no-drama llama and your Les-baru.
Unless there’s a star rising in the East, however, it will take more than your dauntless creativity and your ability to pack a U-haul to make the queer-spawn of your dreams. This is where the brilliant If These Ovaries Could Talk helps make your dreams come true.
Authors Jaimie Kelton and Robin Hopkins are podcast phenom-mom-enal professional raconteurs who have put a compendium of real stories from LGBTQ families who share their struggles to become just that—a family. There is a lot of effort, research, advertising and support for heterosexual couples who want to have children. But where can queer people go? Look no further!
One of the greatest features of this book is the Foreword section where you learn that this book is a Library of Congress level resource. Recognizing that some may not have time to read the book cover-to-cover immediately, the authors have provided several ways to explore with a variety of index options. Later, when you take the fam to Disney, you can go back and gather the parts you hadn’t gotten to yet.
This is a must-have and a super gift for anyone on your list for the Holidays or whose birthday coincides with a burning desire to reproduce. Get the book today, wherever you purchase them.
