"It was Mother’s Day in the Brave New World. I was seated in the living room of a comfortable middle-class home in a conservative midwestern city with a little boy named Liam and his four mothers. Once again: four mothers. All four women gazed lovingly at young Liam, and then happily, almost conspiratorially, at each other. Liam slept in blissful oblivion. He didn’t know he had four mothers. He was only two days old." - Family Business
