"Hilarious, unexpected, and mind-blowing!" -- Thao P. Nguyen, Solo Performer  

". . . I especially appreciate how Julia allows us to see the tightrope, as well as the ambivalence, love and loss that is behind adoption, even the ones that go as well as anyone could hope."
    - Kathleen D.

"We loved it. Julia gives her audience, especially those with no adoption experience a glimpse into the realities and complexities of it all."
 -Angelica A.


"Julia's performance was wonderful. During the drive home, the four of us discussed the characters and their stories - she made them so real. Bravo!!"
 - Patty N.


"I took my girlfriend to see this one woman show and it was AWESOME!! Julia Jackson's range is AMAZING.I applaud her and Iencourage everyone to go see it."  
  -Lee C.


"Julia Jackson is a stitch! Not afraid to make herself the butt of a joke! Highly recommended."

> > > Julia never bought a baby before. Okay, she's adopting, but the agency sure makes her feel like she's buying a baby. Couples competing in the free market of love. Bad ovaries but good credit? Step right up! Did you know some kids are discounted? A black baby--which is what Julia and her wife are seekingcosts 1/2 of a white baby. Almost makes Julia and Amy want to run out and start a chapter of the Black Panthers - and Amy's white!

 The one saving grace is that the waiting time for adopting a black child is six months instead of the two years it takes for a white baby. Oh wait, a gay couple? Make that a year. What's that? Julia is a recovering alcoholic? And she's insisting on including that info in their Dear Birth Mother letter? Make that anywhere between 2 years and . . . Hilary Clinton's second term

 But only five days after signing the contract (non-refundable) at the adoption agency, a bomb drops - a birth mother has chosen Julia and Amy to raise her newborn baby daughter. And by the way, she's in labor. In Atlanta. Good news abounds.



The running time for the show is 90 minutes. There will be one intermission.
