Publisher's Summary

In February of 2009, Shannon and Paul Morell were especially eager to bring a new life into the world. After years of infertility and miscarriages, they had, in 2006, finally scrimped and saved enough to have in vitro-fertilization. The result? Two dear daughters had been born, and six precious embryos had been frozen. They counted the days until they could transfer the six remaining embryos - until the fateful day of February 17, 2009, when the clinic called: "The doctor would like to you to come in today...."
Shannon writes, "Face to face with the doctor, I noticed that his face was gravely serious. 'There's been a terrible incident in our lab,' he said. 'Your embryos have been thawed.' A pause, as we both exchanged disbelieving looks, and he went on. 'Your embryos have been transferred into another woman."
The Morells have a story to tell. A cautionary tale of medical errors, unexpected miracles, sincere mourning, and grateful bonding with their son. Amazingly, theirs is also a story of joy-filled thanksgiving...a story of life, life that is precious, sacred, and treasured.

"Misconception" and "Inconceivable"

“Misconception” is the very interesting story of an IVF mix up and how one couple’s embryo was implanted in another woman. Although I have no idea how I would feel and react if something like this would happen to me, I was puzzled by how the couple wanted to keep their IVF treatments so secret. It did not seem to me like the goal was to keep it private - I can understand that because it really is no one else’s business I agree – but SECRET. Why? A lot of their friends and family didn't even know that their twins born 3 years earlier were thanks to IVF.

Anyway, that’s their right.

Now I am going to read the story of the other couple in “Inconceivable”
