About the Book :
An eloquently written, touching, and surprising memoir about one woman's journey to motherhood and family that illustrates the power of love and triumph of the human spirit.
Adrienne--married, 30-something, and childless in San Francisco--was eager to start a family, but after having a devastating late-term miscarriage, she didn't believe motherhood would ever be possible. Half a world away, in a remote village in India, Vaina was happily married with three small children, but had no means to support her family and build a better life for them.
Poignant, eye-opening, and bittersweet, The Sacred Thread is a memoir of the astonishing journey these two young women took to create a family through international surrogacy. It is the very personal story of embarking on this process, thereby shedding light on a growing business that is often shrouded in misconception. But, more important, The Sacred Thread is a tale of immersing oneself in a foreign culture and 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 connection between women who have absolutely nothing in common, except for a shared love of their unborn children.
