These photos from the series “Waiting for a baby” are completely different from most of these photos: they are not pregnant with the baby’s mother, but his… grandmother.
50-year-old Patti was carrying her own son’s child, since his wife, unfortunately, for health reasons, could not physically save any of her pregnancies.
Since their wedding in 2012, Kayla’s mother-in-law has constantly joked that the best way to carry their child is not a strange woman, but relatives.
Of course, at that time the couple did not take these words seriously, but after they tried to use this service several times – and each time Kayla’s egg did not take root with a potential surrogate mother, Kayla thought about the words of her husband’s mother.
At first I thought that the doctors would say that I was crazy with 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.”
