I remember reading Expecting Adam several years ago, when I was a new mom to Avery. I disliked it, as I did most things I read, then. I was trying to find a story that fit me, and like a real-life Goldilocks, I tried them all out, to no avail–this one was too small, this one was too big. I didn’t realize then that the only story that would fit me was my own, and we had only just begun to make it.
