Cur­tis wants to tell story of stand-in mom

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

Ac­tress Jamie Lee Cur­tis is try­ing to tell the story of an Ok­la­homa woman whose pledge to stand in as a mom at same-sex wed­dings went vi­ral.

In a state­ment Fri­day, Cur­tis con­firmed that she ac­quired the rights to “How We Sleep At Night: A Mother’s Mem­oir,” by Sara Cun­ning­ham of Ok­la­homa City.

Cur­tis says she was among the thou­sands who saw Cun­ning­ham’s July Face­book post of­fer­ing to be a sur­ro­gate mother for LGBTQ cou­ples whose par­ents don’t sup­port them. The two even­tu­ally met, and now Cur­tis says she is work­ing on a deal to get Cun­ning­ham’s story on­screen.
