Publisher's Summary

She never imagined the pursuit to parenthood would involve the emotional assault of an adoption agency's flexible morality or invasive surgical procedures that brutalize both their bodies - but it did.

Lauri M. Velotta-Rankin and her husband were sent overseas by an unscrupulous adoption agency to chase the ghosts of children they'd never bring home. After turning to in-vitro fertilization (IVF), a life-threatening diagnosis sent them reeling with fear and to the brink of emotional collapse.

Despite an onslaught of crushing blows, a gold thread of compassion was weaved into the fabric of their story. An infinite supply of benevolent refuge was found during an unanticipated two-week stay in the home of a Moroccan grandmother. Though there was no personal history, shared culture, or even common language, an immeasurable bond developed. And when the couple decided to explore domestic adoption, a pregnant teenager's weekly emails restored an emotion that had been ravaged throughout their journey: hope.

Triumphing with revitalization, Sheer Willpower is an astonishing account of determination fortified by the resilience of maternal spirit.

    "Amazing book"

    This author can write so well. I can't stop listening to this wonderful story. The author takes you on her journey with so many twists in turns that I find myself wanting to cheer for her and her husband, protect them, and support them. She carries us along this journey not are viewers but as partners sharing her pains and joys.
