Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Dan Savage's nationally syndicated sex advice column, "Savage Love," enrages and excites more than four million people each week. In The Kid, Savage tells a no-holds-barred, high-energy story of an ordinary American couple who wants to have a baby. Except that in this case the couple happens to be Dan and his boyfriend. That fact, in the face of a society enormously uneasy with gay adoption, makes for an edgy, entertaining, and illuminating read. When Dan and his boyfriend are finally presented with an infant badly in need of parenting, they find themselves caught up in a drama that extends well beyond the confines of their immediate world. A story about confronting homophobia, falling in love, getting older, and getting a little bit smarter, The Kid is a book about the very human desire to have a family.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Should be required reading got anyone looking to adopt 15 avril 2014
Par Jill Levy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have never written a review. For anything. Ever. I am an over tipper (like Dan) and therefore, I don't review.

That said. I adopted my son 9 years ago. After going through the same realization that Open Adoption is THE ONLY way (for me, oy). We had "interruptions" and more. We were that infertile couple in the room. And if I had read this book, before. Before infertility.... I would've known to stop sooner. Before adoption... I would've trusted myself as I did later and NOT turned away from maybe scary situations. But more than anything. I would have known. Really understood the birth mother perspective in a healthier way. I love our birthmother. But I was scared of her. I was. If I had read this book before our gorgeous boy was born... I would've done a better job honoring her.

Thank you Dan and Terry! I sent our birthmother your book with my heartfelt thoughts. How lucky am I? I was "mall walking with her. She noticed my ring. I told her it was my engagement ring.... My husbands great grandmothers ring. I told her it would be her (our) sons. His birthright as the first born... To give to the woman he loved. I instantly corrected myself and said "to give to the person he loves". She stopped me. Her tiny body threw herself around me and said "I know you will love him whoever he is!"

Sorry. This book. This book. My god this book.

This was wonderful, hilarious, engaging, tear-jerking and an all-around fun read. Characters were well-rounded and complete, even the "gutter punk" kids with bit parts were absolutely complete characters.

I did think that the first 5-6 chapters got a little bogged down in exposition (my internal editor was mentally removing the chapter "put this book down" as it was entirely irrelevant and didn't move the story forward in any way); once they got into the "pool" and we met Melissa I found it a much more engaging read. Also I wanted to know more about Bacchus and DJ during that first year...as the book came to a close I really felt I hadn't had enough.

Also, while I personally love Savages writing, I find his in-person conversational/interviewing style more than a little brusque and stand-offish, so it was weird to read the parts about others being stand-offish or removed when he really seems very much that way in interviews. Just an observation...

...for those of us who are modern/Millennial/Generation X/urbanite/blue-state/possibly heterosexual/open-minded families. A lot of the books that come up in adoption searches are treacly Chicken Soup for the Adoptee's Soul type stuff, or very Christian-oriented (as are many adoption agencies).
I set out to read this because I've been a fan of Dan Savage's column for over 10 years and we were thinking about adoption, so I was looking for something not-so-treacly-or-Christian.
I was rewarded by his typical honesty and acerbity, and also humanistic respect-with-a-dash-of-realism for the other people involved in the process, from his in-laws, to his son's birth mother, to the agency's workers.

And though this generally labelled and categorized under "Gay and Lesbian Adoption," I thought for the most part the experiences were more applicable than not to every couple looking at open adoption. There are some passages that talk about the unique aspects of adopting as a gay couple (they never struggled with fertility; they thought they would never have the ability to get married; the way they were treated by some family members) and about some political and moral issues around discrimination against gay people, which I could see turning off someone conservative. Thankfully, due to the work of Dan and many other activists, most of these issues have become part of the national dialogue between the time the book was written and now--so to anyone who is reading it specifically for a memoir on open adoption, those passages are more tangential and mundane, than radical.

In short, I recommend this to anyone who is considering open adoption, and looking for something respectful but fun to read about it. I don't recommend it to anyone who is homophobic or disrespectful of queer families.

I first read this book in college, and it really opened me up to the idea of open adoption. Going through the adoption process myself, I wanted to revisit the story. It is still relevant and most importantly, relatable.

Book was in great condition and the story kept me so intrigued that I didn't feel like a was even reading it for a college class of mine. Definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a lighthearted humor yet very touching book that you won't be able to put down.
