4. An American family [2001]

Book
x, 266 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.
After years in a committed relationship, Jon and Michael Galluccio became foster parents to Adam, a premature infant born with the HIV virus and addicted to crack, heroin, marijuana, and alcohol. With love and care, the Galluccios nursed Adam back to health and decided to apply for adoption. Refused by the state of New Jersey -- even as it asked them to care for another at-risk infant -- the Galluccios filed a class action lawsuit. After a tense legal battle, they emerged victorious and the ruling paved the way for all unmarried couples in the state to adopt children jointly. This heartwarming story shows that the American family is vibrantly alive and extending itself in new directions. The paperback edition includes a new postscript describing how the Galluccios became -- unexpectedly -- grandparents.

Gay parenting is a topic on which almost everyone has an opinion but almost nobody has any facts. Here at last is a book based on a thorough review of the literature as well as interviews with a pioneering group of men who in the 1980s chose to become fathers outside the boundaries of a heterosexual union - through foster care, adoption, and other kinship relationships. This book reveals how very natural and possible gay parenthood can be. What factors influence this decision? How do the experiences of gay dads compare to those of heterosexual men? How effectively do professional services such as support groups serve gay fathers and prospective gay fathers? What elements of the social climate are helpful - and hurtful? Gay Men Choosing Parenthood challenges a great deal of misinformation, showing how gay fathers from different backgrounds adapted, perceived, and constructed their options and their families.

"Je suis homosexuel mais pas gay. Mon premier compagnon, aujourd'hui décédé, était à l'époque un intime de François Hollande et de Ségolène Royal, ce que je rappelle au président de la République lorsque je le rencontre à l'Élysée comme membre de la délégation de "La Manif Pour Tous". J'ai toujours fait le choix de vivre en couple et pourtant je suis contre le mariage de personnes de même sexe, non pas pour des raisons d'union entre deux personnes qui s'aiment mais pour la question fondamentale de l'enfant et de son droit à avoir un père, une mère et des grands-parents. Pour qui est donc faite cette loi ? Pour les homosexuels ou pour les quelques centaines de gays qui vivent dans le Marais ? Nombreux sont en réalité les homosexuels qui n'ont aucune envie de se marier et encore moins d'avoir un enfant ! Les chiffres sont là pour le prouver. A l'âge de 25 ans, j'ai envisagé d'avoir un enfant afin de pouvoir lui transmettre un patrimoine, un statut social... bref, je voulais avoir un enfant pour des mauvaises raisons. Evidemment, je lui aurais apporté tout l'amour qu'il était en droit d'attendre. Mais se posait alors une question : celle de la filiation. Quels auraient été les repères de cet enfant, son non-rapport à la mère ? Dans le cas d'un couple homosexuel masculin, la mère deviendrait-elle uniquement une machine à distribuer des enfants contre un gros chèque ou une carte gold ? Et puis je pense à d'autres enfants. Ceux que la génitrice a eus en tant que mère à part entière. Comment va-t-elle expliquer aux demi-frères et demi-soeurs de l'enfant à naître que maman a fait un bébé uniquement pour le vendre ? Quels vont être les traumatismes de ces enfants-là qui, durant 9 mois, auront vu le ventre de leur mère s'arrondir de jour en jour et qui ne connaîtront jamais leur frère ou leur soeur ? Liberté, égalité. fraternité oui ! Liberté pour l'enfant de ne pas être rejeté comme enfant d'homosexuel(le)s dans les petites villes, les campagnes... Égalité pour l'enfant de grandir avec un père et une mère. Fraternité pour l'enfant d'avoir des frères et des soeurs sans de nombreux beaux-papas ou belles-mamans... Non à l'enfant jouet ! Non à l'enfant objet ! Ce livre est la voix de tous ceux qui n'ont pas été écoutés tout au long du débat sur le "mariage pour tous" et ses conséquences sur notre avenir commun. L'espoir qu'ils soient enfin entendus..."--P. [4] of cover.

""Il était une fois deux jeunes femmes de vingt et vingt et un ans, pas très différentes des autres jeunes femmes de leur âge, ni plus moches, ni plus bêtes, ni plus coincées. Elles se rencontrèrent, elles s'aimèrent, elles ne se marièrent pas, car elles n'en avaient pas le droit, et quelques années plus tard, elles eurent néanmoins beaucoup d'enfants... Voici donc l'histoire d'une famille, la nôtre. Elle ressemble à toutes les familles, à ce détail près qu'elle compte deux mères et pas de père." L'auteure et sa compagne ont chacune mis au monde une fille issue d'une insémination artificielle avec donneur anonyme. Aujourd'hui, une dizaine d'années plus tard, ce texte revient sur leur choix, leur parcours et les interrogations que soulève l'invention d'un nouveau schéma familial. Comment vit aujourd'hui un foyer composé de deux mères et de deux adolescentes ? Qu'en est-il de l'absence du père dont on parle tant ? Qu'attendre de l'évolution de la législation en matière de mariage et d'adoption ? Écrit avec justesse et humour, ce livre apporte un éclairage bienvenu sur un débat qui secoue la société française."--P. [4] of cover.

The practice of adoption has changed dramatically over the past half century, with profound implications for children and families. Perhaps the most remarkable and controversial transformation during this time has been the growing willingness of adoption professionals to place children with sexual-minority individuals and couples. Yet, despite considerable research showing that lesbians and gay men can make good parents, they continue to experience difficulties and barriers in many parts of the country in their efforts to adopt and raise children. Indeed, while progress in this area has been significant, it has been impeded by the homophobia and heterosexist attitudes of adoption professionals and the judiciary; by numerous stereotypes and misconceptions about parenting by lesbians and gay men, and by a lack of adequate guidelines and training for establishing best practice standards in working with this rapidly growing group of adoptive parents. Adoption by Lesbians and Gay Men explores the gamut of historical, legal, sociological, psychological, social casework, and personal issues related to adoption by sexual-minority individuals and couples. Leading experts in a variety of fields address-and often shatter-the controversies, myths, and misconceptions hindering efforts by these individuals to adopt and raise children. What makes this book all the more valuable is that it provides insights and specific recommendations for establishing empirically validated best practices for working with an important sector of our society, for treating all prospective and current parents fairly and equally, and, perhaps most importantly, for increasing a still largely untapped resource for providing families for children who need them.
