What resources exist for non-romantic adult friends thinking about having a kid?

The basics: I'm a 40-year-old gay man. My best friend, a straight woman, recently proposed that we conceive and raise a child together. She would be the breadwinner; I'd be the stay-at-home dad. (She earns enough that finances would not be an issue.) The possibility is exciting and overwhelming.
I know there are plenty of families like this — but do any resources exist for them? I'm more interested in books/sites that help with the planning aspect, rather than memoirs like Fairyland (although I loved that book).
Thanks in advance.
