August 2014 Book of the Month

Is it true you have two mums? by Ruby Clay

This is the heart-warming true story of Ruby and Gail and their belief in their potential to adopt. Some of the social workers they encounter think that, as a lesbian couple, they are unfit to be parents; others recognise that their Asian dual-heritage family has much to offer.

This open and honest story charts their journey to becoming parents to three adopted daughters and offers a glimpse of their family life over 18 extraordinary years.

Is it true you have two mums? is the twelfth title in BAAF’s popular Our Story series, which provides an insight into the highs and lows of adoption and fostering through the real life experiences of a wide range of families.
It will be of particular interest to lesbian and gay adoptive parents and prospective adopters as well as adoption social workers and child care professionals.
