The Sacred Thread
A True Story of Becoming A Mother and Finding A Family, Half A World AwayBook - 2012
After three heartbreaking losses, Adrienne Arieff thought she might never become a mother. Then she learned about international surrogacy, found a clinic in India, and embarked on an astonishing journey. Unlike many genetic moms who return home and wait for their baby, Adrienne wanted to feel a connection both to her growing child and to Vaina, the woman who was offering this remarkable gift. So she went back to be Vaina's partner for the last months of her pregnancy. But how do you develop a relationship when you don't share a language or culture? This is a tale of immersing oneself in a foreign land; becoming part of a group of expectant mothers, bonded by their hope for children, and following them on the euphoric highs and crushing lows of their journey; and the development of a deep bond between women who have absolutely nothing in common, except for a shared love of family and children.--From publisher description.
