By Lisa-Jo Baker

Having misplaced her personal mom to melanoma as undefined, Lisa-Jo felt misplaced on her trip to womanhood and thoroughly unprepared to elevate children.
Surprised by means of Motherhood is Lisa-Jo’s tale of changing into and being a mother, and within the procedure, learning that every one the “what to anticipate” and “how to” books on the planet can by no means really arrange you for the sheer excitement, pleasure, and terrifying love that accompanies motherhood.
Set partially in South Africa and partially within the US (with a moderate detour to Ukraine alongside the way), Surprised through Motherhood is a poignant memoir of 1 woman’s dawning recognition that being a mother isn’t approximately being perfect―it’s approximately being current.
