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 voice tells of a family growing up, from her parents' devastating loss of their infant son, to raising their daughters. And it's also a creation story of her own family: raising her three daughters, and the journey they make to adopt two boys from Ethiopia.
