Baby Steps Now Available!
I’m so excited to share my story with you in Baby Steps: Having the Child I Always Wanted (Just Not as I Expected). Available for preorder now and hitting the shelves April 30th, I hope you’ll reserve your copy today!
Elisabeth Rohm always knew she wanted to be a mother—and always thought she’d have plenty of time for the usual steps: meet the right partner, fall in love, get married, and eventually have kids. First, she focused on her burgeoning acting career. When she got the role as Serena Southerlyn on Law & Order, everything looked like it would fall into place. But for Lis, as for so many of us, that didn’t quite happen the way she expected. A chance meeting on a charity trip to Cambodia launched her on an unexpected path to motherhood — and what happened after is a journey that any woman can relate to.
In Baby Steps, Lis breaks the silence about IVF, talking frankly about her struggles with infertility. But this is more than a story about becoming a mother by any means necessary. Inspired by Lis’s own remarkable mom, it’s also the story about the steps along the way that make each of us who we are: being a daughter, growing up, and truly understanding the sacrifices and triumphs every parent shares. And it’s a love story — about friends, family, spouses, parents, and of course, children. With humor and intelligence, Lis shares her deeply personal journey that will resonate with any mother or daughter.
