Ann Krsul and Leslie Sullivan want to be mothers - together. They complement one another perfectly: Ann's analytical and worrying nature balanced by Leslie's more instinctive and soothing demeanor. Together, they discover the process of creating a family -- from selecting a sperm donor and determining who will work and who will carry the baby, to Lamaze classes, the baby shower, and figuring out how to explain "two mommies" to their nieces and nephews.

A year later baby Grace is born, and we experience with Ann and Leslie the challenges and joys of motherhood, including those unique to lesbians.

What the Critics are Saying

"The wacky, emotional rollercoaster that is making a family."
- San Francisco Int'l Gay and Lesbian Film Festival

"An intimate documentary that patiently observes the highs and lows of a 30-something couple who want to become parents. The story of Ann Krsul and Leslie Sullivan is quiet proof that families are indeed created, not mandated." - The New York Times

"Serves nicely as a primer for lesbian partners considering the same leap." - Variety

"The subject is touchy, but Gund handles it with taste and compassion." - New York Post
