The Fourth of July holiday is all about mom and apple pie, as well as the nation's founding. Here is a different story of motherhood.
Brenda Huber took part in a Next To Normal story slam at Nightshop in Bloomington earlier this year.
Huber agreed to offer her experience of motherhood to GLT. She conceived with the help of a sperm donor as her religiously conservative family expressed unease with her choice.
Another Next to Normal story slam will happen Friday, July 27, at 8:30 p.m. at the McLean County Arts Center.
