There are many books being published on queer families, from creating a commitment ceremony to partnering with someone who already has children to adopting your own. Unfortunately, not all are bisexual-inclusive. An excellent resource for these titles is A Different Light bookstore, which can be contacted at, or (800) 343-4002. I particularly recommend The Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy for Lesbians by Rachel Pepper (Cleis Press, 1999) for anyone considering pregnancy, but especially BGLT families.
