I generally love Lifetime movies. I used to watch them with my mom when I was a kid.
I haven't seen this one, but I read an article along the same lines a few years back. The couple tried for years and couldn't have a baby, ended up with a donor egg, donor sperm, and a gestational carrier. Then they got divorced halfway through the pregnancy and the gestational carrier didn't want to give the baby to a "broken home". Talk about a cluster.
I understand why some people would choose to go this route, but I could never choose it for a variety of reasons, the most relevant being that my religious beliefs clash with most forms of ART.
Lifetime movies do tend to be over dramatic, but I've known some crazy situations that have come up from these sorts of situations. While I understand the want to have biological children, it always seemed like too much heartache and weird loop holes to me. And I did research it a fair amount when I was told I'd probably never be able to get pregnant myself.

I believe in a lot of things. I believe in fresh tennis balls, the healing power of bunnies, and that the novels of Susan Sontag are something I'll never read. In fact, I don't even know who Susan Sontag is. What is she... like... a painter? I believe in Crystal Lite because I believe in ME. I believe in the movies of Val Kilmer, though these days it ain't so easy. I believe in Darren Sproles, the word "dabble", the first season of "Silk Stockings", and big, warm, moist, gooey chocolate chip cookies that melt in your mouth and all over your face.
