Determined to succeed no matter the odds, Hopewell doggedly investigates a number of avenues, including in vitro fertilization and donor eggs. Along the way the couple also grapples with their own feelings about adoption and surrogate mothers and the implications of egg donors (will the child one day want to meet its egg mother?).
Hopewell takes readers through every step, every near-success and every total failure with honesty, humor and insight, revealing that the process is much more complicated, convoluted, and expensive than one might ever imagine (the couple spends more than $70,000 on their baby dream).
"Grade A Baby Eggs" will be eye-opening and helpful for any couple considering this route, but more than that it's a tale of courage, steadfastness, trust, and the ability to put one foot in front of the other and keep on truckin'. Hopewell's optimism never seems to wane and she adds just the right pinch of wit and wisdom to her prose. Readers will be inspired and entertained by the author's journey--and by the way she gracefully learns to fully appreciate the gifts that are already hers.

Definitely a great read: Grade A-plus!
It's both an emotional and humorous account of the
relationships within a family impacted by the stresses
of infertility. Having undergone treatments myself, I could
easily relate to the author's quest for a baby and willingness
to undergo whatever was necessary. It is very personal, candid,
and includes the practical realities of dealing with infertility.
I highly recommend it!
