This chapter follows North Americans as they return home with or without a successful pregnancy. It traces the new difficulties many have in raising multiples, having complicated pregnancies, and the sorrow of those who are not successful. It continues with an analysis of social kinship as it is sustained by women’s kin work via social media. Also, a majority of the couples engage in return reproductive travel to the Czech Republic for multiple cycles of IVF.

Keywords:   quests for parenthood, souvenir baby, raising multiples, resemblance talk/discourse, biosociality, return reproductive travel, social kinship, gendered kin work, relatedness, disclosure
