Journey to Parenthood
When they arrived at the clinic, Jennifer and Kendall met Dr. Patel and Sangita, an Indian woman who agreed to carry their baby. For three weeks, the couple lived in an Anand hotel as Jennifer underwent surgeries to remove her eggs. Every other day, Kendall took a sample of his sperm at the hotel, jumped in a rickshaw and delivered it to the clinic. "You get used to giving up all dignity," Jennifer says. "[You] just kind of do whatever you've got to do."
Once their procedures were completed, the couple made the arduous 25-hour journey back home...and the waiting began.
