Wow! Again, I say, WOW! What a journey this story of Carolyn and Sean Savage's pregnancy with another couples embryos is! It is so well written by 2 non-professional writers that I felt with them the entire way. Especially the emotional travails, the secrets that had to be kept from those who could have provided the needed support and the pressure put on their marriage. That abortion was never considered due to their strong faith in God and the doctrines of the Catholic church, Logan Savage Morell is a living child today.
If you are looking for a book you can't put down, read Inconceivable.

Such a moving story of one family's tragedy and another family's joy. This was a true story and one that I could not imagine going through myself. I feel for both sets of parents and their families. What a courageous and heartbreaking thing Carolyn did for this child. I recommend this book and was very glad I read it.
