From the Back Cover
-------------------

From Dan Savage, the writer whose sex-advice column, "Savage Love", enrages and excites four million people
every week, comes the story of his journey into parenthood.

For Dan and his boyfriend Terry, the odyssey begins at a seminar in Portland where (after rejecting the idea of making a
"biokid" with a lesbian couple, a lesbian single, and their straight next-door neighbor), they decide on an "open
adoption". The birth mother who selects them as the adoptive parents for her child is a street kid named Melissa, who
drinks and uses drugs during pregnancy and who, despite doctor's orders, is still living on the streets. As Dan and
Terry tag along on her prenatal visits and the due date rapidly approaches, the fears common to adoptive parents mount:
What if the baby isn't healthy? What if we aren't parent material? What if the birth mother changes her mind and decides
to keep the baby?

In The Kid, Dan Savage shares his views on what it means to be gay and raising a child in America today. In the process,
he takes his usual scathingly funny potshots at everything from growing up gay to committing to a younger man, from the
gay left to the religious right, homophobia...love...getting fat...getting married...getting older...and the very human
desire to have a family.
