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.

Modern Biography

This is a extremely emotional story and must have been hard for the authors to open themselves up to all the media furore. I know couples who have been through IVF without all these complications, and it is without doubt an emotional rollercoaster, so what happened to this family must have been devastating.

I didn?t really enjoy this audio as I found it too repetitive throughout. I would have liked to have heard more of the husband?s side of the story too, as I found it very one-sided. It is very much about Shannon's emotions, thoughts and feelings.

Personally I think this book would?ve been better as a novel based on a true story or maybe written in the third person. I think listeners who like modern biographies might enjoy this.

The narrator?s voice is very easy to listen to and she does well with all the emotion.

Thanks to christianaudio.com?s reviewers programme for the copy of this audio book.
