These photos from the series “Waiting for a Baby” are unlike most of the others in that they are not pregnant with the baby’s mother, but with his… grandmother.
Patti, 50, was carrying her own son’s child because his wife, unfortunately, could not physically save any of her pregnancies due to health issues.
Kayla’s mother-in-law has constantly joked that the best way to carry their child is not a strange woman, but a relative.
Of course, the couple did not take these words seriously at the time, but after using this service several times – and each time Kayla’s egg did not take root with a potential surrogate mother – Kayla remembered her husband’s mother’s words.
“At first, I thought the doctors would think I was crazy for having such an idea,” Kayla recalls.
But then I searched for information and found out that there are many cases when grandmothers carry their own grandchildren.
We went to the clinic, and there, after numerous tests, they confirmed that Patti could become our surrogate mother.” The first in vitro fertilization test was in March 2017, but alas, it ended in failure.
Before finally giving up, the family decided to try again.
And after 2 months they tried again.
This time- finally -there was a success.
Seven months later, Cross Allen Jones was born.
He was born on December 30 by Caesarean section.
“I am so shocked by the possibility of this miracle,” says Kayla.
– It’s clear that surrogacy is a test, and for Patty, it was especially serious, but when the child is in your hands, everything else fades into the background.”
