And Baby Makes More: Known Donors, Queer Parents, and Our Unexpected Families explores the phenomenon of the ldquo;known donorrdquo; in the queer family structure: what happens when would-be dyke moms or gay dads ask a friend or acquaintance to donate sperm or an egg, or to act as a surrogate?And Baby Makes More pushes at the boundaries of current family conceptions. This quirky, funny, and occasionally heartbreaking collection of personal essays offers a front-row view into the relative risks and unexpected rewards of queer, do-it-yourself baby-making, and the ways in which families themselves are re-made in the process. The authors-donors, biological and non-biological parents, and their children-offer provocative, nuanced insights into what it means to be or use a known donorand how queer families are being reconceived to include new roles, new rules, and, sometimes, more than two parents.Susan Goldberg is a writer and editor whose work has been featured in a variety of media. She is the recipient of the 2002 Editorsrsquo; Association of Canada Tom Fairley Award. Both Susan and Chloeuml; are queer moms who conceived their children with help from known donors.Chloeuml; Brushwood Rose works as a professor of education at York University. She is the co-editor of the Lambda shortlisted and critically acclaimed Brazen Femme: Queering Femininity (Arsenal Pulp Press, 2002).
