61-Year-Old Postmenopausal Surrogate Gave Birth To Her Own Grandson

It does not matter how old a child may be, they will always need a loving parent to guide them through life. In certain cases, a parent may have to go above and beyond. When Kristine Casey’s daughter needed help, she did not hesitate to assist her. The request was a bit unusual, though. Sara could not get pregnant on her own and she needed assistance.

Oprah Winfrey featured this story on her television network and rightfully so, as it is an amazing one. This is one of the more incredible modern medical miracles that we have ever seen. While we do not wish to give away the entire story before you have a chance to see it for yourself, we would like to inform our readers that the mission was a successful one.

Dr. Susan Gerber is the specialist who assisted with the procedure. She was well aware of just how profound this surgery was. As Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s maternal-fetal medicine specialist, she has never seen anything quite like this before. Of course, Sara’s husband Bill was a bit skeptical at first. He just wanted to know if it was scientifically possible.

He was also worried about any potential worst case scenarios. Infertility is one thing but the idea of placing his mother in law in harm’s way frightened him. Fortunately, there was nothing to worry about in this regard. Kristine said that this was her calling and once Bill heard that, all of his fears and doubts were put to rest.

Everyone is well aware of the insistent mother in law stereotype. However, Bill knew that Kristine meant business when she made this offer. He was not about to stand in her way. This grandma to be wanted to provide her daughter with the same joys that she had experienced. The IVF process began and everything went swimmingly from there. Sara was also very enthusiastic about the process.

All she wanted was to hold her own baby in her arms. This experience allowed her to make this dream come true and become even closer to her mother in the process. What an incredible birthing story. Oh, to be a fly on the wall when this child learns that they would not have been born without the help of their grandma. Grandmas are already awesome enough but Kristine is taking the concept to a whole new level.
