Shipping Info
Surprised by Motherhood is Lisa-Jo Baker's story of becoming and being a mom, and in the process, discovering that all the "what to expect" and 'how to" books in the world can never truly prepare you for the sheer exhilaration, joy, and terrifying love that accompanies motherhood. This book is a touching memoir of Lisa-Jo's dawning realization that being a mom isn't about being perfect—it's about being present.

Surprised by Motherhood
