From out of my body your soul did grow

From out of my body your soul did grow 
by Rozanne Nathalie 
illustrations/graphics by Jennifer Lofchie; Bruce Sulzberg 
Language: English 
Edina, Minn. : Beaver's Pond Press, ©2002. 
[15] p. : col. ill. ; 24 cm.
ISBN: 1931646775; 9781931646772
Reading level: Ages 2-6
Review: Told in rhyme, this is the story of how a couple could not carry their own child, so a gestational carrier, a “wonderful lady with a heart made of gold” carried their baby in her own tummy. The story is about surrogacy, but it is left unclear whether the egg was from the surrogate, an egg donor, or the couple themselves. Colorful illustrations.
