Choosing Family: A Memoir of Queer Motherhood and Black Resistance

By Francesca T. Royster
Abrams Press
288 pages

“This lyrical and affecting memoir focuses on a unit of three: the author; her wife Annie, who’s white; and Cecilia, the Black daughter they adopt as a couple in their forties and fifties. Choosing Family chronicles this journey to motherhood while examining the messiness and complexity of adoption and parenthood from a Black, queer, and feminist perspective.”
