A medical mistake during an IVF procedure.An unthinkable situation....you're pregnant with the wrong baby. You can terminate, but you can't keep him. What choice would you make?

Carolyn and Sean Savage had been trying to expand their family for years. When they underwent an IVF transfer in February 2009, they knew it would be their last chance. If they became pregnant, they would celebratethe baby as an answer to their prayers. If not,they would be grateful for the family they hadand leave their fertility struggles behind forever.

They never imagined a third option. The pregnancy test was positive, but the clinic had transferred the wrong embryos. Carolyn was pregnant with someone else's baby.

The Savages faced a series of heartbreaking decisions: terminate the pregnancy, sue for custody, or hand over the infant to his genetic parents upon delivery. Knowing that Carolyn was carrying another couple's hope for a baby, the Savages wanted to do what they prayed the other family would do for them if the situation was reversed. Sean and Carolyn Savage decided to give the ultimate gift, the gift of life, to a family they didn't know, no strings attached.

Inconceivable provides an inside look at how modern medicine, which creates miracles daily ,could allow such a tragic mistake, and the many legal ramifications that ensued with both the genetic family and the clinic. Chronicling their tumultuous pregnancy and its aftermath, which tested the Savage's faith, their relationship to their church, and their marriage, Inconceivable isultimately a testament to love. Carolyn and Sean loved this baby, making it impossible for them to imagine how they could give him life and then give him away.

In the end, Inconceivable is a story of what itis to be a parent, someone who nurtures a life, protects a soul, only to release that child into theworld long before you're ready to let him go.

    " The perfect title for this tragically sad story. The Savages were so strong during this long, hard trial. I was impressed by their kindness to the genetic mother despite her ridiculous comments and unsympathetic attitude. Seriously who says, "I'm supposed to go get my hair done but I guess I can make it to the hospital in time for the delivery"?? They were so smart to get lawyers and therapists right away and they told their family and friends so carefully. Will probably make you cry but was definately worth the read. "

    " A beautifully told story. I can't imagine what Carolyn and Sean went through for those long months. I kept thinking how could they give up the baby, but then realized how could they not give him to his biological parents. This is one story that will stay with me for a very long time! "

    " One of the best books I have read all year. It's one of the few books I've ever read that makes me shake my head at the law - Carolyn could either kill this baby or carry it to term and give it up. No custody battle would side with her. The real impact of the book, legally, is felt in the explanation of how the mistake was made, found in the very last pages of the book. I won't spoil it, but they were (blessed or unblessed, you decide) to have learned it was not their embryo at such an early date. I'm also very torn on this couple's decision to go forward with continuing to add to their family. Such an awful event must have really tolled on their existing 3 child family, and the couple even admits distraction (understandable) to their family during this. I really felt at the end that they should thank God for their 3 healthy children and hang up their child bearing hat. I'm not in their position to it's hard to judge. I applaud them for infusing the Catholic Church's teachings with common sense in a decision that worked for them, and I applaud them for giving Logan life. "
