   schema:description "In 2005, Dan Bucatinsky and his partner, Don Roos, found themselves in an L.A. delivery room, decked out in disposable scrubs from shower cap to booties, to welcome their adopted baby girl launching their frantic yet memorable adventures into fatherhood. Two and a half years later, the same birth mother a heroically generous, pack-a-day teen with a passion for Bridezilla marathons and Mountain Dew delivered a son into the couple's arms. In Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight? Bucatinsky moves deftly from sidesplitting stories about where kids put their fingers to the realization that his athletic son might just grow up to be straight and finally to a reflection on losing his own father just as he's becoming one. Bucatinsky's soul-baring and honest stories tap into that all-encompassing, and very human, hunger to be a parent and the life-changing and often ridiculous road to getting there."@en ;
