Bringing in Finn
An Extraordinary Surrogacy StoryBook - 2012
In February 2011, 61-year-old Kristine Casey delivered the greatest gift of all to her daughter, Sara Connell: Sara's son, Finnean. At that moment, Kristine--the gestational carrier of Sara and her husband Bill's child--became the oldest woman ever to give birth in Chicago. While Finnean's birth made local headlines, this book tells one modern family's remarkable surrogacy story. Connell recounts the tragedy and heartbreak of losing pregnancies; the process of opening her heart and mind to the idea of her mother carrying her child for her; and the profound bond that blossomed between mother and daughter as a result of their unique experience together. Bringing in Finn is a 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.--From publisher description.
