5 Months Apart: A Story of Infertility, Faith, and Grace

Kerstin Lindquist ’99

Kerstin Lindquist’s girls aren’t twins, though they look remarkably alike. They were conceived in the same month but born five months apart. Despite the years of pain living with infertility and struggling to adopt, these girls are the miracle that happened when they gave in to God’s plan. “5 Months Apart” is intended to help families come out of society-imposed seclusion, to ask for help and to believe in the ultimate happy ending: a successful pregnancy and a blessed adoption.

To treat patients using psychoanalysis, psychiatrists must first undergo their own analysis. And Dr. Jacob Fink plans to coast through his own stint on the shrink’s couch as quickly as possible. But soon, his 45-minute sessions unearth long‑buried struggles that are both profound and profane. He is on his way to a breakthrough when something unthinkable happens, and he now has to dig deep to unwrap the last of his inner struggles and finally grow into the therapist he knows he can be.
