The new life in Carolyn Savage’s womb was supposed to be her miracle- a beloved baby conceived by in vitro fertilization after years of trying for a bigger family. But on the very day the clinic phoned to confirm her pregnancy, her husband broke the news: You’re pregnant, but they transferred the wrong embryos.
After moving past the shock, the Savages were faced with two choices: terminate the pregnancy or relinquish the infant to his genetic parents, Shannon and Paul Morell, as soon as he’s born. Knowing that hidden within Carolyn’s body was some other family’s hope for child, they decided to carry the Morell baby to term.
The Savages plan to tell their story in their forthcoming book, Inconceivable (on sale Valentine's Day 2011). A riveting chronicle of the devastating discovery and the challenging decisions that followed such as when and what to tell their other children, let alone the community at large that saw Carolyn’s expanding waistline and couldn’t wait to congratulate her on the new addition to the family, it will also depict the touching moments Sean and Carolyn spent with the baby boy after he was born, before turning him over to his biological parents for good.
The story is made even more heartbreaking when we discover this is the last pregnancy Carolyn’s body can handle, putting into question what the Savages will do with their remaining embryos.
