Lisa wants to have a child; it has been her dream since she was a little girl. Although she was diagnosed at a young age with polycystic ovarian syndrome, a hormone condition that can lead to infertility, she married young and believed then that she had enough time to seek fertility treatments to become pregnant.
At thirty-six, after years of trying and failing to conceive, she decides the time had come to get aggressive with her treatments. She attempts fertility medications and various treatments, but to no avail. Her medical conditions would not allow her to become pregnant and carry a baby.
Desperate, Lisa and her husband, Al, elect to try in vitro fertilization-only to discover that she has uterine cancer. She has a hysterectomy to save her life, but now having her own child suddenly becomes an impossible dream.
Then, Lisa and Al learn about the possibility of using a surrogate mother. Lisa happens to catch a television show about a clinic in India that focused on IVF and surrogacy with success. Using this information, their quest for parenthood truly begins.
