AILSA CHANG, HOST:
Five years ago, Liv Aannestad was about to leap into the unknown. Single and 36, she was about to become a mom on her own through in-vitro fertilization.
LIV AANNESTAD: I always assumed it would happen the normal, typical way. I'd meet somebody, maybe either in high school or college, and get married and have a few babies. But it didn't happen that way.
CHANG: Before she did, she got some advice from Pam Rector, mother to a 17-year-old daughter and a single mom by choice. It was part of our series Been There.
