Overview

In February 2011, 61-year-old Kristine Casey delivered the greatest gift of all to her daughter, Sara Connell: Sara's son, Finnean. At that moment, Kristine—the gestational carrier of Sara and her husband Bill's child—became the oldest woman ever to give birth in Chicago.



Bringing in Finn is the incredible story of one woman's hard-fought and often painful journey to motherhood. In this achingly honest memoir, Connell recounts the tragedy and heartbreak of losing pregnancies; the process of opening her heart and mind to the idea of her 61-year-old mother carrying her child for her; and the profound bond that blossomed between mother and daughter as a result of their unique experience together.



Moving, inspiring, and ultimately triumphant, Bringing in Finn is an extraordinary tale of despair, hope, forgiveness, and redemption—and the discovery that when it comes to unconditional love, there are no limits to what can be achieved.

I could not put it down. I am not going through infertility myself but I have a few friends who are and I'd like to commend Ms. Connell on being so brave and sharing with us her intimate details. This book has helped me be more understanding to the difficulties my friends might be going through. Awesome read that brought me to tears several times. I've read reviews of people saying that she is a little "neurotic" or "stretching the truth" but I think those types of moments in the book just add the flavor. It kept me interested. This could have easily been a boring book but it was not. Read like a movie. I wish all the best to the Connell family and to every family that is going through something similar.

I highly recommend this amazing memoir to all women. I am honored to know the author, Sara Casey Connell. I told her years ago that she is one of my personal heros because of her profound psycho-spiritual wisdom and gifts for healing and inspiring others. Her memoir is incredibly beautiful, vulnerable, moving, and inspirational. I couldn't put the book down and was completely overcome with tears from reading her painful yet extraordinary journey into motherhood. It is a true love story. I have great love and respect for Sara and highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in understanding the power of the feminine, our purpose and our connection to one another.

I think this was a great book to relate to also having gone through fertility challenges and one others can relate to if they too have had fertility challenges.
