Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Beaches comes a new novel about a central fact of adult life - the perils and passions of parenting in the 90s. Rick is a famous movie director on the brink of his 50th birthday. Despite his wealth and his many conquests, he's floundering until he decides to adopt a baby.

Ruthie and Shelly are the hottest comedy writers in Hollywood, and lifelong best friends. But their real partnership begins when they decide to create a baby together, even though Shelly is gay and Ruthie is straight.

Lainie and Mitch spent years building a strong marriage and a very exclusive boutique. Although Lainie's health prohibits her from becoming pregnant, Mitch decides that he must father a child.

These families find their way to the office of Barbara Singer, child psychologist, with whom they form a unique parenting group they whimsically nickname the Stork Club. Through laugh-out-loud episodes and tearful scenes, Iris Rainer Dart has created a universal story about the transforming power of raising a child. Prepare to lose your heart to the members of the Stork Club, who give new meaning to the term "designer genes."
