IN THE ASTONISHING FOLLOW UP to Book One, The Unexpected Mother, Susan Ring a single mother of two, and a surrogate mother is at a photo shoot for O, The Oprah Magazine in 2003.
Invited to share her story with the world, the photographer hands her a sign to hold in front of her body for the article. The sign: FOR RENT. What follows is a transformational story that is both heartbreaking and exhilarating.
As Susan hurtles toward the confusion of what it means to be a surrogate mother, she looks for what might help her cope and throws herself back into the surrogacy world.
She will end up spending the entire decade of her forties being a surrogate mother for other families. As with many love stories, things start to fall apart and she realizes surrogacy/pregnancy has become an obsession.
Susan longs for a single why to her pregnancy past, but instead finds many complex reasons.
She forges ahead to find answers deep within herself, and wants what is missing from her life. She finds what she never expected.
