Summary The in vitro fertilization mistake was simply stated: Carolyn Savage was pregnant with someone else's embryos. She and her husband Sean were forced to make a seemingly inconceivable choice: Either terminate the pregnancy, sue for custody, or deliver the baby--and relinquish it. The Savages decided to do what they would hope that another couple would do in a comparable situation. This is their story.--From publisher description.
