Good book with practical advice. All of it wasn't for me (especially the parts about having to "give up the dream of marriage". I'm gay. That's been gone for a long time.) but it's a great guidebook to navigate the waters of single parentdom.

This book started me on my journey! Well written and very encompassing - covers social, financial, medical, spiritual aspects of solo parenting. The author started a national organization that has several listservs that were very helpful to me, as well.

Good starter book for women thinking about the option of having a child alone.
Haven't started this one yet. stay tuned.
