Hypothetical future baby : an unsentimental adoption memoir / Claudia Chapman.
- Chapman, Claudia
About this work
Claudia Chapman has some big questions. Questions like: were all my friends this obnoxious before they had kids? Will the social worker notice if I only vacuum the middle of the rooms? Does God really hate me, or does it only feel that way? And, most importantly, will anybody find out that sometimes I pretend my cat is a baby? Claudia doesn't want to have these questions. Claudia and her husband Jay want children, but they find out fast that isn't going to happen the fun way. Confronted with the choices of a medically risky pregnancy, remaining childless or adopting, they decide to adopt internationally. After all, thinks Claudia, how hard can it be? From England to Ethiopia and back again, this memoir is the story of what happens next.
