A couple is having a baby with a heart condition that will cause the child to die within a day of her birth. The parents-to-be want Addison to harvest the baby’s eggs so they can be fertilized. They feel it’s the only way they’ll have a chance at parenthood. Charlotte and Addison are considering the morally-suspect procedure. Naomi and Cooper are against it. Nevertheless, Addy makes the call to move forward.
Addison performs an emergency C-section to save the distressed baby. Afterwards, the parents don’t want to see the child. They only want her eggs harvested. Cooper is rocking the baby in the nursery when Addison arrives. His comments about parenting being a lifelong commitment no matter how long or short it may be hit home. Addison brings the baby into the parents where they can’t help but bond with her. Looks like Addison won’t be doing the questionable procedure after all.
