Bringing in Finn by Sara Connell

In February 2011, sixty-one-year old Kristine Casey delivered to her daughter, Sara Connell, the greatest gift of all—Sara’s son, Finnean. For years Sara and her husband Bill had been trying to have a baby and had suffered through a miscarriage and stillborn twins. Sara and Bill had started to give up hope of bringing a baby to term. Nevertheless, a little over a year ago when Kristine approached her daughter about being a surrogate she didn’t know what Sara would say. But Kristine felt she must try. The happiest moments in her life were when she gave birth to her three daughters. She felt the vision to surrogate for her daughter was a calling. IN BRINGING IN FINN, Sara tells the remarkable story about how their family came together to create a life.
