A touching and endearing story of heartbreak and shattered dreams… of overflowing and bountiful love. Adrienne and Vaina embark on an adventure that traverses pure love and cultures. The two women courageously work to fulfill both of their dreams. For Adrienne it is her dream of being a mother and having a family with her husband, Alex. For Vaina it is to provide a better life for her family. Adrienne and Vaina face the many stigmas attached to surrogacy and overcome the stark cultural differences to become more than mother and surrogate.
The Sacred Thread is a startling look at the bias attached to foreign surrogacy, when it was, in reality, a beautiful and tasteful experience. It is the fulfillment of a mothers dream.
Though I run more with the science fiction genre, I found The Sacred Thread to be spellbinding as you feel the disappointment and loss suffered by Adrienne and Alex, accompany them through their travels along the streets of small village in India and ending with a triumphant journey home. A well written experience shared in such a way I could almost see and smell the atmosphere of Anand, India.
