Any Other Family
by Eleanor Brown

They look just like any other family.

But they aren't a family like any other – not quite. Instead, they are three sets of parents who adopted four biological siblings, committing to keeping the children connected after the death of their grandmother.

Tabitha the planner of the group, is insistent that everything happens just so. Quiet single mother Ginger resists the forced togetherness, and Elizabeth, is still reeling from going directly from failed fertility treatments into adopting a newborn.

A surprising call from their children’s birth mother announces she is pregnant again and wants them to help her find an adoptive family for this baby too – threatens to destroy the delicate bonds they are still struggling to form. As tensions rise, the three women reckon with their own feelings about what it means to be a mother and what they owe each other as a family.

Any Other Family is a thought-provoking and poignant look at how families shift and evolve and a striking portrait of motherhood in all its forms.
