Are there issues/problems that can be better understood or worked through between siblings and friends than with one’s partner? Could you donate a leftover embryo to a childless couple? Would you consider yourself in any way then that child's parent, or would you consider the connection severed forever? Jessica and Matt disagreed on whether to donate their leftover embryos. Was their resolution fair? How is it that deep grief over the loss of a child can strain, and sometimes end, a marriage? In cases of artificial insemination, whose rights are paramount? The child or the parents? How would you feel in Carolyn's shoes, if your child's donor mother appeared and wanted a relationship with the child? Jessica feels a yearning towards Mia which she did not expect. Are her actions understandable or does she cross a line? Matt's grief is deeply felt, but rarely articulated. How can this type of communication affect a marriage?
