Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "What does it mean to be a mother? Professional woman? Wife and partner? Sister, daughter ...? How do we discover the true meaning of identity? As a child, Susan Silverman was surrounded with a loving family--even if her parents weren't happily married, they were devoted to their kids. Not a terribly faith-based family, social justice was the religion practiced at the Silvermans' home. Susan's vibrant, funny, imminently relatable voice tells of a family growing up, from her parents' devastating loss of their infant son, to raising their bright, funny, wildly individual daughters. And it's also a creation story of her own family: raising her three bright, funny, wildly individual daughters, and the journey they make to adopt two boys from Ethiopia. A meditation on identity, faith, and belonging, the book will resonant with anyone who's struggled to find her own place in the world, what that place is, and how to create and sustain a family in a world full of chaos"-- Provided by publisher.
