Summary
Edited by master storyteller Dede Crane and award-winning author Lisa Moore, both of whom contribute their own stories, Great Expectations is a must-have collection for parents and parents-to-be. Uniquely honest and transformative, Great Expectations takes the reader on an emotional and physical journey like no other, Lynn Coady relates the painful memory of her teenage pregnancy and the anguish of having to give up her newborn for adoption, Peter Behrens expresses a father's feeling of utter helplessness and incomparable joy during the birth of his first child, Christy Ann Conlin describes pregnancy at age forty, Afua Cooper reflects upon the immigrant's experience of three pregnancies and childbirths in a new land with evolving customs, Anne Fleming chooses a male donor with her same-sex partner, and Jaclyn Moriarty transcribes her grandmother's and her mother's birth stories, along with her own, to create a tender oral history spanning three generations
