TTC Books, Blogs, and Hope

So I just read a very interesting post over at about books and blogs dedicated to lesbian motherhood. I was very excited to see the article because it gives visibility to an important slice of lesbian life on a popular website I enjoy.

The article focuses on a small sample of blogs and books written by lesbian moms, like Lesbian Dad, Mombian, etc. Linda Villarosa starts off by mentioning a new book called, Knock Yourself Up: A Tell-All Guide to Becoming a Single Mom, which apparently does chronicle one single lesbian’s journey to motherhood. The book apparently is marketed to the 'general audience' so it's not all lesbian all the time. The author, Louise Sloan, also includes interviews with 50 other women about their quest to reproduce.

Apparently, it took her 15 years to give birth, and then there was a bidding war on her book after she first mentions an essay about her TTC journey to a publisher.

So, maybe there is a little ray of hope reserved for me, Nadia and baby Godot.
