Bringing in Finn Book Review

Bringing in Finn is an extraordinary biographical story about a 61 year old postmenopausal woman who gives birth to her daughter and son in law’s son. This was made possible by in vitro fertilization (IVF). This book was easy to follow and a good read. I would recommend it to anyone that is interested in reproductive assistance. It’s fairly informative on the process and everything that involves. Sara is also very descriptive, which is nice for a raw and real truth about the matter. She even details her story about how she felt like she was broken because her and her husband were unable to have children despite her eggs and his sperm forming good embryos every cycle.

Sara suffers a stillbirth of twins and a miscarriage during her journey. Her and her husband spent 7 years trying to have children before her mother volunteered to be their surrogate. She came across the idea during a vision workshop led by Sara. She meditated on the idea for a bit before presenting it to her daughter in the form of a letter. Sara and Bill were awed by her selflessness, and they immediately began moving forward in the process. Everything went smoothly and a healthy baby boy named Finnean (Finn for short) was born by cesarean section.

If you want to know more about fertility, follicle stimulation, in vitro fertilization, or surrogacy, you should read this book. If you want to read a good book that will have your emotions in a whirlwind, read this book. If you want to read about a selfless act of love, read this book. If you want to read about the greatest gift a mere human could give another human, read this book.
