WOW, you did a fantastic synopsis of the movie! It was horrible but thank goodness it couldn't have happened to a better "set" of parents.
Sorry I missed it I would have loved to have seen it. It sure is a sad story.
Hey there, That is a very heartbreaking story! I can't believe that they were made to give up the baby! It was the hospitals mistake! Why didn't they let the biological parents of the child try to carry their embryo instead of trying to use a surrogate! I suppose the morals of the story are sound and the baby did belong to the other parents but still she carried it!!! She didn't have a choice she couldn't exactly turn it down and let someone elses baby die! god love them! I really hope they will ahve another chance to get their baby! x
I saw it and as I watched it all I could think about is US, I literally mean all of us that are going through this. You know as you lay there and they insert the tube and show you the screen and tell you these are your embies...just a little fear comes over you(me). Then they tell you only one out of 7 survived the thaw...Really?! I pray they are right. I'm sorry, these were my fears and the fact that this happened 2 years ago...well....I pray they learned from this. GOD bless the family that carried the baby, they are strong and I have so much respect for them.
SSBD to All of Us
I know, it was such a powerful story that made me think too. Chrissymom, I said the same thing! Apparently the biological parents have the choice because it was their embryo but the mother carrying the baby had the choice to abort it if she wanted! That made no since to me. If you carry it, you have to give it up, but if you don't want too, you can get rid of it! The bio. parents were lucky to get that couple because some people would not want to go thru that for someone elses child. If I were the bio. mother, I think I would've volunteered to try to surrogate the other couples baby if I could. It seemed logical to me but no one ever brought it up. It made me think of all of us here too. No one ever really talks about fertility problems unless it is a really tragic or shocking story.
