Gift Guide: MHB's Essential List of Surrogacy Books for Adults and Kids

This festive season, we want to share the extensive book list we created with our families and dads-to-be. Our recommended reads showcase the gay male surrogacy journey, both in the realms of literacy for children, and informative reading for prospective gay parents. Each book has been selected and screened by the team at MHB, and a summary provided for each potential reader.

This holiday season, utilize our book library to help guide your gift-giving - or receiving. Dads and dads-to-be, grow your home library to include more picture books featuring gay dad surrogacy journeys and diverse family stories. Clinics and agencies, why not introduce relevant reading material to your gay male clients. This extensive list of adult and children's books is a great place to start your shopping this holiday season.

See the full list here, or read more for some inspirations.

For the kids:
Be enchanted by John Oliver's hugely popular "A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo," a heart-warming tale of a boy bunny who falls in love with another boy bunny, told through a story of advocacy and democracy. Or enjoy the charming story of Itai and Yoav in "Gal and Noa's Family," as the two dads explain to their children about their surrogacy journey in a simple and humorous way. With these great picture books and plenty more, we've got you covered.

For the adults:
Our featured reads help provide roadmaps for those learning more or beginning their surrogacy journeys. Overwhelmed? Don't be. Books like Dr. Kim Bergman's "Your Future Family: The Essential Guide to Assisted Reproduction" is a great primer and includes the stories of gay men.

Happy Holidays, and happy reading!
