After waiting for Mr. Right (who has yet to arrive) - and after years of fertility treatments - Suzanne, a single woman in her 40s, decided to adopt. She chose transracial adoption. Follow Suzanne through workshops designed to "teach white people how to raise kids of color," baby-shopping trips with Mom at Target, a critical rendezvous with a young mother at a pancake house, and, finally, a magical night at a suburban restaurant chain. As she waited to see if she would become a parent, Suzanne offered extraordinary access to her home and her remarkable journey toward motherhood. This documentary is her audio diary.
