Share Article

Arizona author Paul Hampsch candidly shares the experiences of a gay couple going through the international adoption process.

A Family of Choice: A Gay Man's Story of International Adoption by Scottsdale, Arizona resident Paul Hampsch has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh.

Having been partners for many years, Paul Hampsch and his life partner, Domenic, made the decision together to adopt. But finding an adoption agency that would even consider allowing a single gay man and his partner to adopt was quite a challenge. With the support of friends and family, Paul was surrounded by blessings and felt sure he would eventually be able to adopt.

As time passed, Paul navigated a range of challenges, some of which tested his level of resolve in one way or another, but he was finally able to adopt and return to America with his children. His story is enclosed in these pages, and he tells his readers, "The bittersweet joy of parenting continues to make my soul complete…Each bend in the road leads to a new horizon."

Paul Hampsch lives in Arizona with his two sons, Paul Jr. and Andrew. He currently volunteers at a local hospital emergency room, plays guitar, and loves to cook. Mr. Hampsch has also published trade manuals and training materials and is also the author of Marketing Is Relationship Building (1985).

A Family of Choice: A Gay Man's Story of International Adoption is a 176-page hardcover with a retail price of $18.00.
