WHO'S YOUR MAMA? is an incredibly well-written collection of essays about the sorority of motherhood. Each chapter is a different essay telling the challenges of having, longing for, not wanting, or desperately seeking entrance into the complex, yet rewarding status of mother. Every essay concludes with a short biography of the author. Readers will root for, find judgment in, or gain a better understanding of this diverse group of women. The conventional wisdom of modern motherhood is delved deeply into. Each woman explores what motherhood means to her and, in the process, readers will be challenged to face their own hopes, dreams, fears, and realities.
Topics include miscarriages, adoption, in-vitro fertilization, donor insemination, single parenthood, custody battles, lesbian motherhood, divorce, raising step-children, raising bi-racial children, being a stay-at-home-mom, and balancing a career and motherhood. The decision to have children is almost as difficult as the lifelong process of rearing children. Whether you've always wanted children, never wanted children, or find yourself suddenly becoming a parent, this book is sure to be a treasure.
