Lania wanted it all, a career, a house, a family and a happily ever after, preferably in that order. After graduate school, she had her ideal career and a townhouse to call home but her attempts at love were not what she had expected. In her relationships, she had been the best friend, the rebound and the other girl. When she turns 31, Lania moves to Albuquerque and confides in a new Obstetrician who encourages her to consult a fertility specialist. Some days, she is eager to start the process to become a mother on her own, choosing a donor and injecting herself with hormones. Other days, she misses the road not taken and the love story that could have been. As she moves forward with her decision to have a child, she experiences criticisms from Catholic family members, discrimination at work and pregnancy complications. After Lania receives the results of a genetic test, she learns how strong a mother must be to hold on to her dream.
