"[A] funny, happily-ever-after story...This smile-inducing first-person journey is a worthwhile investment for anyone going through infertility treatment and anyone else who just wants a good chuckle."

In this illustrated memoir, Becker shares her funny, happily-ever-after story of getting pregnant through in vitro fertilization (IVF)... The book is funny but a little racy... the few R-rated jokes shouldn't deter anyone from reading this laugh-out-loud book, which ends satisfyingly with Becker marrying her female partner, Lorene, and welcoming a healthy daughter, Aurora. This smile-inducing first-person journey is a worthwhile investment for anyone going through infertility treatment and anyone else who just wants a good chuckle. - Karen Springen

And here's the ol' Kirkus Review:

"Following in the tradition of James Thurber and Jules Feiffer, best-selling author/illustrator Becker combines droll illustrations with a lively narrative style in this chronicle of the high expectations and shattering disappointments on her journey to motherhood... Her laugh-out-loud humor permeates this account of her experiences... Tender and funny, this appealing modern love story is greatly enhanced by the author's drawings."  Kirkus Reviews
