Choosing Single Motherhood: The Thinking Woman’s Guide by Mikki Morrissette

Choosing Single Motherhood: The Thinking Woman’s Guide by Mikki Morrissette – I loved the spirit of this book. Without glossing over the hard parts, Morrissette celebrates motherhood and the choice to parent without a partner. This book covers families formed by adoption, by using a known sperm donor, and using an unknown donor. The only thing I would change about this book is the name. It is equally applicable to women or men who choose single parenthood. You can listen to an interview with author Mikki Morrissette on the Creating a Family podcast: Considering Becoming a Single Mom

Adopting on Your Own: The Complete Guide to Adoption for Single Parents by Lee Varon

Adopting on Your Own: The Complete Guide to Adoption for Single Parents by Lee Varon – This is an excellent resource for single people considering adoption. It walks the reader through making an even-handed assessment of whether adoption is right for them, then leads them through the different stages of arranging and financing the adoption. Varon weighs the specific advantages and disadvantages of different types of adoption as a single parent, and demystifies potentially daunting steps such as choosing an agency and preparing for the home study. A great place to start if you’re considering adoption as a single parent.
