Publisher's Summary

Sara Casey Connell and her mother hadn't been particularly close for a long time. But when Connell lost a third pregnancy after years of fertility treatments and one late-term stillbirth of twins, her mother offered to be a surrogate for her child - and Connell and her husband accepted. Two years later, Finnean Lee Connell - a healthy baby boy - was born.
Bringing in Finn is the remarkable 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 twin sons 27 weeks into pregnancy; 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 the two of them as a result of their unique experience together.
Moving, inspiring, and ultimately triumphant, Bringing in Finn is an extraordinary story of despair and hope, forgiveness and redemption, and the discovery that when it comes to unconditional love, there are no limits to what can be achieved.

Made me cry tears of sorrow, and joy.

Stunning book. Beautifully written and narrated. Sara Connell paints an amazing story of love, loss and bliss. As a woman who suffered through infertility and loss myself, I felt her pain so much. And I felt her love. This book is a gift.
