This really is a special interview. Here, our surrogacy ambassador Kirsten McLennan talks to sisters Jem and Maddy about their incredible journey together and the book Amazing Grace, written by Jem’s mother in law Venetia that tells thheir story
When 31-year-old lawyer Jemani Alchin-Boller was diagnosed with cervical cancer and told she needed a radical and urgent hysterectomy she thought her dreams of being a mother were dashed. Then her sister Maddy sent her a text saying, “You can have my womb.”
Amazing Grace is a story of the love and resilience of two sisters. It is a poignant, personal narrative that will inspire and encourage others who – against tough odds – are determined to be parents.
