    In all transparency, I was given a copy of this book to review from goodreads.

    Get your tissues ready. Adrienne Arieff took me on an emotional journey with her that I will never forget in her new book, "The Sacred Thread." Her memoir captures the raw, and revealing pilgrimage she took to become a mother. With her journey leading her half way around the globe, Arieff shares every tear and triumph. Her celebrations and heartache will also be yours as you read. A beautiful tale of the creation of family, and the important people that played a part of her miracle. Thank you, Adrienne, for sharing this important story of loss and blessing.

    Great Read!

    A touching and endearing story of heartbreak and shattered dreams… of overflowing and bountiful love. Adrienne and Vaina embark on an adventure that traverses pure love and cultures. The two women courageously work to fulfill both of their dreams. For Adrienne it is her dream of being a mother and having a family with her husband, Alex. For Vaina it is to provide a better life for her family. Adrienne and Vaina face the many stigmas attached to surrogacy and overcome the stark cultural differences to become more than mother and surrogate.
