This was a quick read. I really wanted to like this book, but the Savages' attitudes kept getting in the way of my really enjoying it. I have nothing but respect and admiration for their decision and unselfishness to give Loagn life. The thing that really got me was the fact that they blamed everyone else and refused to take any responsibility for their first decision to participate in IVF. The Catholic church has a policy against IVF, but they decided to go against their church's teachings and rationalized why they should be an exception. God never makes mistakes, but people do. Thus, by going against their Catholic teachings, and instead letting man participate in creation, they opened themselves up to mistakes. But, they weren't willing to accept responsibility for choosing a method that allowed for mistakes to be made. Instead, it was everyone else's fault but theirs.
