Item description for Discovering Motherhood: An Extraordinary Journey Through Everyday Life by Annemarie Scobey...
Overview Discovering Motherhood is a journey without a map-a life-long trip into a new and unfamiliar world. It is a daunting, high-energy trek with ups and downs and bumps in the road. The price of admission is three a.m. feedings, endless diaper changes and lost sleep. But the payoff comes in the profound relationships of mother and children, and in the love that gives life its luster. Annemarie Scobey has recorded the journey with insight, humor and a sure sense of the presence of the Divine in the turmoil, troubles and triumphs of everyday life. Discovering Motherhood celebrates a dimension of life that only mothers can truly know.

An Absolute Joy To Read Feb 13, 2007
This book is reminiscent of the great Erma Bombeck with a spiritual twist. The way the author expresses her personal journey into motherhood not only inspired me but gave me great pride in the work we mothers do. Along with the witty story telling is a compelling undercurrent of strength, patience and determination. This book is an excellent read and a perfect gift as well.
Fabulous book to read over and over! Jan 10, 2007
This book was truly enjoyable to read! I have read it through and in parts 3 times! Each chapter is relevant to a parent (even if you do not participate in a foster care system). She is a master with words, wit, and wisdom. I have already given it as a gift to 4 different women!

Great as a gift for a Mom you love, or for yourself!
