Dad David, Baba Chris and Me - Turnaround Publisher Services
Dad David, Baba Chris and Me por Ed Merchant (Editorial Turnaround Publisher Services).


Seven-year-old Ben has a pretty ordinary life in all respects but one: he has three dads. 'Baba Chris' and 'Dad David' adopted him after his birth parents weren't looking after him well enough. The book describes the emotional turmoil Ben experiences when he is first adopted caused by his fear of rejection and his concern for the welfare of his birth parents. His emotions manifest themselves in temper tantrums and fits of anger. Some of the children at Ben's school tease him and call him gay. David and Chris visit the school with their son, and his teacher explains that the children are wrong to tease him and they haven't yet learned that gay parents can love each other in the same way as their mums and dads do.
