It’s Washington DC in 1990 and yuppies Lauren and Mack Weiss seem to have it all: great jobs, nice cars, and each other. All they need—and desperately want—is a baby to complete the picture.

Join them on their five-year quest through infertility, genetic testing, adoption and more. Learn about the behind the scenes antics of the Maryland General Assembly while Lauren juggles the demands of her job with her desire to start a family. Will it all be worth it in the end?

From an author often compared to Erma Bombeck, this funny and compelling debut novel will have you laughing out loud, sometimes crying, but always hopeful. A heartwarming, true-life story that will stay with you long after the last page is turned.

Kirkus’ review acclaims: “…well-paced and witty, sometimes even laugh-out-loud funny”
