Summary
Every Conceivable Way recounts one couple's nine-year quest to become parents, while giving an inside peek into the IVF and surrogacy industries, the fertility merry-go-round, and what it's like to live for years with uncertainty. After relocating to Australia from New York, Despina Meris and her husband, Bill, settle down to baby-making. What they never expect is a string of heartbreaking unexplained miscarriages, even with the help of IVF. They turn to surrogacy - first in India, then in the Ukraine and finally in Thailand, where their baby is conceived. But more drama unfolds when, overnight, they are caught up in the Thai government crackdown on commercial surrogacy, leaving them with no way of contacting their pregnant surrogate. This is the almost-too-crazy-to-be-true story of Despina and Bill's nine-year quest to become parents, but it's about more than just the drive to have a child. It's also an insider's experience of the IVF and surrogacy industries, and the way women are treated in the fertility meat-grinder. It's about what it's like to live for years with uncertainty, how far you'll go before you call it quits, and what really matters when it seems like all the odds are stacked against you
