Why I wrote this book
One of the happiest days of my life was the day that Mary and I got legally married (on our 16th anniversary!). I wanted to write a book that captured all the joy of that day for children who have two moms who make a lifetime commitment to each other, whether their marriage is considered legal or not by the state in which they live.
