“I loved kids and babies and I wanted to know what I had done to deserve this,” she continued. “I felt so alone.” After coming to terms with the news, Stenberg subsequently concentrated her efforts on her job, brokering deals on aircraft and flight sales.
However, Stenberg’s outlook on the situation altered dramatically when former professional golfer Claes Nilsson walked into her life. She told him that she was unable to have children from the start. However, he was determined to find a solution. From there, the wheels were set in motion as the pair got engaged and looked to build their family.
Unsurprisingly, Stenberg and Nilsson researched adoption and surrogacy, as well as other options available to them. Then they found another alternative. Gothenburg University was home to a groundbreaking transplant program. Young women could receive donated wombs in an attempt to have children. With that in mind, Stenberg joined the project alongside another eight women.
