After being together for five years in the small town of Common, New Mexico, Joel and his 'husband' Tom decide to start a family. The only problem is they're both men. Knowing that two gay men will never be able to adopt, they decide to find a surrogate mother to carry their child. They do not bargain, however, for the beautiful and determined Sharon Minninger--a runaway from a Mennonite community near Nuevo Casas Grandes, Mexico--who offers to carry the child. Her influence on their lives is far more than they every dreamed. Nor do they expect the backlash against their decision to be fathers to be as virulent as it is from some of the less open-minded citizens of the small southwestern New Mexico town. But they do have powerful allies in what comes down to a battle over the child that is eventually born.
