This Woman Could Not Get Pregnant So Her Mother-In-Law Became The Surrogate For Her Own Grandson
On 26th February 2018
Kayla and Cody Jones couldn't get pregnant because of their medical issues. But bless science and technology for its vast options to make the pregnancy possible for them. Kayla's mother-in-law decided to help her family and Patty Resecker at the age of 50 gave birth to her own grandson acting as a surrogate for her son and daughter-in-law.
#1 Kayla And Cody Jones Were All Set To Bring Their Little One Into The World
Texarkana, Arkansas, couple Kayla and Cody Jones were all set to start their own family but unfortunately, it seems like parenthood was not on their cards as Kayla suffered from partial hysterectomy back in her teenage life making her unable to bear children for life.
#2 The Couple Were Losing Hope But Kayla's Mother-In-Law Stepped In To Help Them
Not giving up, the couple started searching for other options and from there started their search for a suitable surrogate since their marriage in 2012. However, the struggle for finding a suitable surrogate was real and just when things turned real hard for the couple, Kayla's mother-in-law Patty stepped in to help her family and offered her son and his wife to become their surrogate. After much hesitation, the grateful couple accepted the offer.
#3 Kayla At First Thought That The Option Of Patty Carrying The Child Is Absurd
After all the required tests done, it was decided that the baby's grandmother will be his surrogate. Kayla, 29, says when she was told about this option by her doctors, she thought they were crazy, "At first I thought the doctors may think we were crazy, but as I researched I found other grandmothers who had been surrogates. After much testing, my mother-in-law was cleared to carry our baby."
#4 Procedure Failed The First Time
In October 2016, the procedure of in-vitro fertilization egg retrieval started and the couple had their embryo transferred into Patty's uterus in March 2017. But the method didn't work out. Doctors transferred the second embryo in May 2017 and this time the miracle worked and Patty Resecker became pregnant at the age of 50!
#5 Couple Made The Journey Special For Themselves In Their Own Way
The couple wanted to make the pregnancy special for them and wanted to experience the feeling of doing the in-home pregnancy test. Kayla says, "The day we found out was the second best day of my life (the first best day was the day Kross was born!). Patty left a urine in a specimen cup on her porch before she left for work. I picked it up and my husband and I tested at home. I cannot describe the feeling of seeing two pink lines."
Fortunately, the pregnancy went really well and the couple welcomed baby Kross Allen Jones was born on Dec. 30 via cesarean.
#6 Patty Says She Is "Privileged" To Help Her Family In Their Tough Time
Talking about her experience, Patty says being able to help her son and daughter-in-law in such a way was a privilege for her and she considers it as one of the most rewarding experiences in life, "This is something that has blessed not only me and my family but also Kayla’s family. A child is a lifetime commitment and I knew there weren’t two more deserving people than them. To see them with Kross and see the parents they’re already becoming thrills my soul."
#7 Baby Kross Is One-Month Old And Is A Healthy Baby!
Baby Kross is now one month old and the family posted adorable pictures of him on their Facebook page to share their joy with the world. It is also reported that Patty is recovering well from pregnancy and is doing great. Congratulations to the happy family!
