Forever Dads

Forever Dads: A Gay Couple’s Journey to Fatherhood, chronicles their first meeting at the “Pop Luck Club,” (a group of openly gay dads whose families did not originate from any prior heterosexual marriages) to choosing their local county “fost/adopt program,” over other choices such as surrogacy and private or international adoption. The reader will come along with Tony and Antonio as they navigate the tumultuous roller coaster ride of the Los Angeles County foster-adoption system to the ultimate adoption finalization of their sons Erik and Johnny.

The book, (which has continued to run as a regular column in Frontiers Magazine from 2006-2009), is told in a compilation format from the popular column called “Bringing Up Gayby,” will explore many themes, some unique to the gay experience and others simply universal in the journey to parenthood.

The reader will discover how this happy, inter-racial couple, experiences reactions to race from their families of origin (one black, one white; and their adoptive Latino sons) as well as the reactions of both gay and heterosexual friends on their path to parenthood. The couple surprisingly discovers the amount of support and acceptance they encounter from the larger heterosexual community and experience some disappointments and disillusionments along the way, coming unexpectedly from some of their own gay community members.

Zimbardi-LeMons family story is told in heartfelt installments peppered with rich humor and poignancy, a must read for any prospective adoptive parent, gay or straight.
