Within a society that long considered "lesbian motherhood" a contradiction in terms, what are the experiences of lesbian mothers today? In this illuminating book, lesbian mothers tell their stories in their own words--how they became mothers; how they see their relationships with their children, relatives, lovers and friends; and how they deal with threats to custody.
