Misconception : One Couple's Journey from Embryo Mix-Up to Miracle Baby
by Paul Morell and Shannon Morell and Angela Hunt




Overview -
In February of 2009, Shannon and Paul Morell were especially eager to bring a new life into the world. After years of infertility and miscarriages they had, in 2006, finally scrimped and saved enough to have in vitro fertilization. The result? Two dear daughters had been born, and six precious embryos had been frozen.

They counted the days until they could transfer the six remaining embryos. Until the fateful day of February 17, 2009, when the clinic called. "The doctor would like to you to come in today..."

Shannon writes, "Face to face with the doctor, I noticed that his face was gravely serious. 'There's been a terrible incident in our lab, ' he said. 'Your embryos have been thawed.'

A pause, as we both exchanged disbelieving looks, and he went on....

'Your embryos have been transferred into another woman.'

The Morells have a story to tell. A cautionary tale of medical errors, unexpected miracles, sincere mourning, and grateful bonding with their son. Amazingly, theirs is also a story of joy-filled thanksgiving . . . a story of life--life that is precious, sacred, and treasured.
