As a midwestern, station wagon driving, stay-at-home mom and as a nonbiological lesbian mother Miller both defines and defies the norm. Like new parents everywhere, she wrestled with the anxieties and challenges of first-time parenthood but experienced pregnancy and birth only vicariously. Part love story, part comedy, part quest, Miller's candid and often humorous memoir is a much-needed cultural roadmap for becoming a parent, even when the usual categories do not fit.
