Breeding in Captivity: One Woman's Unusual Path to Motherhood by Stacy Bolt

The title makes it sound like Bolt and her husband lived in a zoo. Bolt underwent years of fertility treatments, and then decided to pursue adoption. The book is split up equally about the fertility treatments and then the adoption process. Both were grueling and full of ups and downs.

I learned some stuff. Like about all of the online message boards out there providing support for women trying to get pregnant. They sprinkle virtual "baby dust" on each other to wish each other good luck.

A short, compact, and very readable memoir with lots of humor and honesty throughout, this book had me rooting for Bolt and her husband throughout the process. They are seem like very cool and grounded people.
