New York Times Bestselling Author and GDA Exclusive, Leslie Morgan Steiner, releases her new book The Baby Chase
In The Baby Chase, acclaimed writer Leslie Morgan Steiner weaves three stories together - of a nurse, a firefighter, and the Indian gestational carriers and doctors who helped them - to provide one intensely personal look at what makes surrogacy so controversial, fascinating, and in some cases, the only ray of hope for today's infertile parents-to-be.
Rhonda Wile and her husband Gerry struggled for years with infertility. With perseverance that shocked everyone around them, they tried every procedure and option available - unsuccessfully - until they finally decided to hire a surrogate. While surrogacy was being touted as a miracle for hopeful parents, for Rhonda and Gerry, it seemed an impossible and unaffordable dream. Until they came across the beaming smile of a beautiful Indian woman on the internet... and, within a few short months, embarked on a journey that would take them deep into the emerging world of Indian carriers, international medical tourism, and the global surrogacy community.

Moving, page-turning, and meticulously researched, this complex human story is paired with an examination of the issues-religious, legal, medical and emotional-that shapes surrogacy as a solution both imperfect and life-changing.
