#BookReview: Uncertain Fruit: A Memoir of Infertility, Loss, and Love by Rebecca Majoya, Sallyann Majoya

Synopsis: A loving lesbian couple raising their two boys as a blended family in Vermont, Rebecca and Sallyann are deeply committed parents who dream of having a baby together. They try everything from foster care to fertility trials, and after nearly ten years of failed attempts, find an opportunity to participate in a local, private adoption with a teenage mom. Rebecca and Sallyann are overjoyed when they hold their newborn son in their arms. They take the baby home from the hospital and welcome him into their family. But outside forces intervene and the birth mother reclaims the baby, sending the couple into a tailspin. To survive this traumatic loss, Rebecca and Sallyann lean on their love as a couple, and grow stronger in their grief. 

From their distinct voices, this dual memoir explores how feelings of self-doubt, longing, and heartache sneak into the layers of life, informing the decisions you make and the place where you belong.


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: Heartbreaking look at two woman who wanted what so many take for granted.  A baby.  This is a behind the curtain look at what people go through to have one joy in their life.
