Shannon Morell: Embryo Mix-Up Gave Miracle Baby

The Savages have retained a New York City attorney, according Howard J. Rubenstein, the agency that represented them at the time of the birth, but the couple has not said publicly if they will pursue legal action.

By writing the book, the Morells advise prospective parents to better research fertility clinics, particularly their protocols for handling embryos. "You are dealing with human life," she said. "People need to be proactive."

Shannon Morell is still trying to figure out God's plan for her agonizing efforts to raise a family -- perhaps that Logan might one day bring "great good" to the world.

"I don't think I will know for awhile," she said. "I think everything happens for a reason. Just when you think you are going through personal growth and learn lessons why, there are more tough times. I try to take what life gives you and make the best of it."

"If I hadn't found out [about the embryo mix-up], I would have been OK with it," said Morell. "My kid would have had a great life, raised by a large family, educated in a Christian household that values education. He would have been fine."

From the start, Morell has called Carolyn Savage her "guardian angel," and her book acknowledges her monumental sacrifice: "Thank you for nurturing our son, protecting him and most of all, loving him enough to let him go."
