Description

When Greenberg was in her mid-twenties, studying to be a rabbi and living in a feminist world of non-traditional relationships, she wondered how she would create a family. As a single woman engaged in passionate activism, Greenberg had always planned to be a mother. This book tells the story of her journey into spirited motherhood, and of how she parented her five children within a web of relationships that included donor dads, a gay male parenting partner, birth parents, multiracial children, women lovers and former lovers in addition to her strong and loving family of origin. Rooted within the inspiring personal story of the Greenberg family, Just Parenting also draws on Greenberg's years of experience as a rabbi, family therapist and maker of social change, offering guidance from the mainstream and from the margins. Just Parenting is a powerful infusion of optimism, best practices and personal experience about creating one's own unique path to parent for a better world.… (more)
