An incredibly moving story of surrogacy and how it created a bond like no other between a mother and daughterIn February 2011, Sara Connell's mother, Kristine Casey, delivered the greatest gift of all to her daughter - Sara's son Finnean. At that moment, 61-year-old Kristine - the gestational carrier of Sara and her husband Bill's child - became the oldest woman ever to give birth in Chicago. Bringing in Finn is the incredible story of one woman's 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.
