"As of 2012, there were 110,000 children living in same-sex households. This book is a testament to those children. Every one of us has a different story. I can't wait to hear theirs."

This gripping memoir is told through the eyes of the author. Tony Hynes' remarkable story is both heartbreaking and uplifting. His birth mother was too ill to take care of him, and he ended up in an orphanage as a toddler and was stuck there for two years.
When Janet and Mary came into his life, Tony knew that he'd found his true home. And then, misguided but well-meaning relatives decide to fight for custody, marring what should have been a happy childhood with two remarkable women.
At the heart of this raw and honest and very well-crafted memoir is the notion of what it means to be a family. Tony paints a picture of an American life, full of rich detail of his day-to-day suburban childhood as he moves from home to the sports field, church, and then to school. When tragedy strikes the little family, Tony barely has time to become a sulky adolescent.
As much as it is a manual on what it takes to be a good parent, it is an inspiration for children with a challenging home life. The Son With Two Moms should be required reading for all those who work in or who are considering adoption.
