In Mamalita: An Adoption Memoir, Jessica O’Dwyer recounts her story as an American woman struggling to adopt a baby girl against almost insurmountable odds in Guatemala. Her book explores the nature of parenthood—the fierce love and loyalty that makes it possible for us do more than we knew we were capable of, inspired by more love than we knew we had to give. Jessica is the adoptive mother to a daughter and son.
Jessica grew up at the Jersey shore, the daughter of a high-school shop teacher and former Radio City Music Hall Rockette. She now lives with her husband and children in Marin.
