"I love this film about a group of 8 women who pursue single motherhood via adoption or donor insemination. This film chronicles the stories of several women in the New York "Single Mothers By Choice" group. The film sensitively shows each woman's longing for motherhood, their families' reactions to their choices to become single mothers, the struggles of some with infertility, and each one's journey towards motherhood via donor insemination or adoption.

The documentary follows the group for 2 years. As you watch their stories unfold, you find yourself crying, hoping, and cheering along with them. The final scene shows each woman 1 year later with her child, some still waiting for their adoptions to finalize, along with the very moving "Baby Mine" track.

I have watched this film many times. It inspired me in my journey towards single motherhood. It sustained me during the long wait to adopt my daughter. Later, as a new mom, I watched it with my own mom -- who was then a first-time grandmother. It brought us both to tears.

Single motherhood by choice is a profound experience, full of longing and difficult choices. And as this film shows us, it can be done!"
