by Jeffrey Roach, President of Encoretech, Inc.

This novel from Southern writer Jeffrey Roach recounts the heartwarming and hilarious tale of how he and his partner Ken started a family in one of the unlikeliest places. The book takes place in the early 2000s, when single parent adoptions were the only way for a gay couple to adopt a baby from Guatemala and begins when the couple's best friend announces she's pregnant. Ken wants a baby too.

What follows is a whirlwind eighteen-month journey that takes them from Dallas to Guatemala and back, as they work to bring baby Jackson home to meet his big, extended family. Along the way they discover that being "out" takes on a new meaning when the duo becomes a trio and that the word family is broad enough to include them.
