Rose paused, looked intently into my eyes, shrugged her shoulders and said, “Ah, the evolution of us.” In The Evolution of Us, each chapter contains an intimate portrait of a mother with young children. The portraits vary greatly, from middle class to working class women, stay-at-home moms and working moms, heterosexual and lesbian mothers, and a mother of a child with special needs. By sharing and reading the experiences of others, the hope is that we can move forward as a generation of women who support one another, and who can work together to create a more stable system of support for the next generation.
