Abstract:

"Breeding in Captivity takes us on Stacy Bolt's journey to have a child at "advanced maternal age," first with the help of a Really Expensive fertility specialist, and then ultimately through a local adoption agency. But this isn't your typical serious memoir about struggling with infertility; it's an entertaining, witty read that perfectly balances humor with its more poignant moments. Breeding in Captivity is about a quirky, lovable couple that you root for through their fertility struggles and adoption adventures. It's about the hundreds of Internet message boards where annoyingly perky women from Kappa Alpha Fruitcake refer to sex as "babydancing" and sprinkle virtual "baby dust" on each other. It's about meeting birthmothers and deciding on open adoptions. It's about being chosen and then having a birthmother change her mind. But ultimately, it's about hope, how life can surprise you, and laughing through the insanity"--

"More and more women today are waiting to have children--whether intentionally or due to circumstances beyond their control. But when they do, the desire to have a child at an "advanced maternal age" can be both overwhelming and intimidating. Breeding in Captivity illuminates the experience of infertility and adoption, offering readers an inside look at the process while simultaneously captivating them with an extraordinary--often hilarious--story of what it means to become a mother"--
