Sara Connell’s journey to motherhood is a modern miracle. Her lyrical book chronicles an adventure that leads us into uncharted territory. Connell reaches deep into her heart to write about the desire for children, the sacred trust of marriage, the enduring bonds between mothers and daughters, and the sustaining power of hope. I couldn’t put it down.”

I knew I would give this book to all the people I know who are struggling with fertility. My mind naturally drifted to those who have suffered losses on the route to parenthood. And I firmly believe that they will find in Connell's story inspiration, comfort, and hope.
But, I am passing Bringing in Finn along to anyone who expresses any kind of longing, not just for children, but also for family, or partnership, or healing, or purpose. Those are the friends I most want to read this book full of heroes: Connell's mother, the newly retired 60-year-old, who prepared her body for a post-menopausal pregnancy. Connell's husband who embraced the miraculous possibilities and made delicious meals for the women in this story. Connell herself who generously and gorgeously chronicles her family's story, taking readers from the heartbreak of a second-trimester miscarriage to the triumphant birth of her son Finn. And finally, Finn, the baby whose birth is the result of both astounding medical advances and the awe-inspiring tenacity of his entire family.
