  • Elizabeth Berg marvels at witnessing her child give birth to her child
  • Judith Guest confesses her failed attempt to be the perfect grandmother
  • Jill Nelson grapples with unforeseen mother-daughter tensions
  • Ellen Gilchrist reveals how grandparenthood has eased her fear of death
  • Beverly Donofrio makes amends for her shortcomings as a teenage mother
  • Bharati Mukherjee transcends her Hindu upbringing to embrace her adopted Chinese granddaughters
