Overview

Every mom has felt the need to be perfect.

"MOMAHOLIC" is one woman's private, dramatic, and often comical invitation to peek inside a time in her life where everything fell apart and she had to take an honest look at what she was doing right and what she'd been doing terribly wrong. With this simple discovery, her whacky family's season of becoming unraveled found a new glue (other than her blood, sweat and tears) that would re-bond her family and unite them in a deeper and more functional way than ever before.

The real life characters:

A MOM who is literally the head writer of a network soap opera. at work and at homeA HUSBAND who expects perfection from his kids and his wife, but who has the wisdom to know he's being unrealistic and yet, can't help but scratch his head in frustration as his family's troubles seem to spiral out of his controlAn autistic SONA popular DAUGHTER who is suddenly pregnantAn ADOPTED DAUGHTER pulled from the jungles of Vietnam with no leg below the right knee and fingers fused togetherAn ADOPTED SON from Ethiopia, rescued from the streets at the age of 9.

This is a story showing the speed with which a "normal" family can fall apart. No one dies. No one gets kidnapped. They just have to deal with each of their own issuesand then one unwanted and unplanned pregnancy. This was a church-going family whose kids were taught abstinence until marriage. With the family running around as the tornado sirens roared warnings to take cover, mother, Miss Drama, becomes the biggest mess of all and ends up finding a whole new freedom for her soul.
