An incredibly moving story of surrogacy and how it created a bond like no other between a mother and daughter
In February 2011, Sara Connell's mother, Kristine Casey, delivered the greatest gift of all to her daughter - Sara's son Finnean.

In this achingly honest memoir, Connell recounts the tragedy and heartbreak of losing pregnancies 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 mother and daughter as a result of their unique experience together.Moving, inspiring, and ultimately triumphant, Bringing in Finn is an extraordinary tale of despair, hope, forgiveness, and redemption,and the discovery that when it comes to unconditional love, there are no limits to what can be achieved.
