Victoria Hopewell was a forty-something divorced clinical psychologist when she met and married a longtime bachelor whose ninety-year-old parents were anxiously waiting for a grandchild. Problem was, even though Victoria had two young daughters from a previous marriage, her intense desire to create a baby with her new husband was thwarted by her own body. Her eggs were aging faster than her healthy hormones and youthful appearance would suppose. Desperate to bear a child, willing to undergo every procedure from Lupron shots through egg harvesting and in vitro fertilization (IVF), she is blocked at every corner of medical protocol from achieving her dream of a successful pregnancy. Finally she journeys toward acceptance of using a donor egg, much to the dismay of her growing daughters. But no eggs are available, and she is placed on a lengthy hospital waitlist. Victoria and her husband then embark on a surrealistic egg hunt to find their own donor. Follow her insider's account of the hidden world of egg donation-where women's eggs are bought and sold over the internet and a beautiful model with high SATs and a prior successful donation commands the highest prices. Where you can go on blind egg dates to meet a potential donor, or breed future superstars with the eggs from musical divas and Olympic athletes. Grade A Baby Eggs is a must read for anyone considering IVF and the donor egg option to bearing children. AWARD WINNING BOOK!
