Editors Note A taut, emotionally gripping novel about one couple?s passionate desire for a child and their heartrending journey through adoption?from a critically acclaimed writer whose ?voice is at turns wise and barbed with sharp humor? (Vanity Fair).Jesse and Ramon are a happy, loving couple but after years trying to get pregnant they turn to adoption, relieved to think that once they navigate the bureaucratic path to parenthood they will finally be able to bring a child into their family. But nothing prepared them for the labyrinthine process?for the many training sessions and approvals, for the ocean of advice, for the birthmothers who would contact them but not choose them, for the women who would call claiming that they had chosen Jesse and Ramon but weren?t really pregnant. All the while, husband and wife grapple with notions of race, class, culture, and changing family dynamics as they navigate the difficult, absurd, and often heart-breaking terrain of domestic open adoption. Poignant, raw, and wise, Jennifer Gilmore has written a powerful and unforgettable story of love and family.
