Amazon summary: While You Were Sleeping, written by Stephanie Burks, is a story that lovingly describes the day that two women learn that a birthmother has chosen them to adopt a newborn baby boy. While their future son sleeps through his first hours of life, his new mothers experience all of the joy and anticipation of their new life together.
