Bringing in Finn: An Extraordinary Surrogacy Story

by

Bringing in Finn: An Extraordinary Surrogacy Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In February 2011, Sara Connells mother, Kristine Casey, delivered the greatest gift of all to her daughter – Saras son Finnean. At that moment, 61-year-old Kristine – the gestational carrier of Sara and her husband Bills child – became the oldest woman ever to give birth in Chicago.

Bringing in Finn is the incredible story of one womans hard-fought and often painful journey to motherhood. In this achingly honest memoir, Connell recounts the tragedy and heartbreak of losing pregnancies; the process of opening her heart and mind to the idea of her 61-year-old mother carrying her child for her; and the profound bond that blossomed between mother and daughter as a result of their unique experience together.

Moving, inspiring, and ultimately triumphant, Bringing in Finn is an extraordinary tale of despair, hope, forgiveness, and redemption—and the discovery that when it comes to unconditional love, there are no limits to what can be achieved.
