Ann Patchett’s book State of Wonder keeps a marvelous secret.  There is a tribe in the Amazon where women in their 70’s are having babies.  A pharmaceutical company hopes to cash in on this miracle baby-grow for women of a certain age.  While I was trying to get pregnant, I kept searching for a new discovery that would enable me to use my own eggs to become pregnant in my early 40’s.  The doctors told me that stem cell research would be the answer, but that we were not scientifically there yet.  I would have been thrilled to learn about the Amazon women where age was no barrier to pregnancy.  In fact I would have rushed to the jungle and joined the tribe!
