Recently, A Grandmother Served As A Gestational Surrogate For Her Grandchild. Kristine Casey Of Illinois, Who Is 61 Years Old, Carried Her Daughter And Son-In-Law's Biological Baby.

Recently, a grandmother served as a gestational surrogate for her grandchild. Kristine Casey of Illinois, who is 61 years old, carried her daughter and son-in-law's biological baby.
Because we're on the topic of surrogacy, following is another interesting story. I hadn't read much on surrogacy in the news for a while when we learned that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban had a daughter through a gestational surrogate. Since then, it seems that I come across at least one story every few days. Earlier today, I posted an interview with a gestational surrogate. The other day, I read about a grandmother who served as a gestational surrogate for her grandchild. Kristine Casey of Illinois, who is 61 years old, carried her daughter and son-in-law's biological baby. IVF (in vitro fertilization) and other assisted reproductive technology make it possible for women who are past menopause to become pregnant and give birth. Casey's daughter dealt with infertility before becoming pregnant with twins. Unfortunately, her babies were stillborn. That loss was followed by a miscarriage. I think the story behind Casey's decision to volunteer her womb to her daughter is sweet:
Casey's previous three pregnancies — her last was 30 years ago — went smoothly, resulting in three daughters. After Casey retired in 2007, she filled her time walking, meditating, taking classes and socializing with friends. But she felt she had a deeper calling. "At the beginning of 2009," she said, "I decided for once in my life to take some time to think about my life and find something that seemed right for me — where there was no pressure to do a specific thing." During a visit to Chicago — she lives in Virginia — Casey participated in a workshop led by Connell, a life coach, writer and lecturer on women's empowerment. In one class exercise, she used pictures cut from a magazine to create a collage depicting a life's goal. One picture grabbed her attention: an ostrich with an expression of wonder and joy. Casey wanted to experience the exuberance captured in the picture.
She offered to serve as a surrogate and her daughter and son-in-law accepted the offer. Casey underwent extensive testing to ensure a pregnancy wouldn't jeopardize her health or life. Casey then became pregnant after her second IVF cycle and delivered a healthy baby -- her first grandchild -- via c-section.
Sara Connell said she was grateful for her mother's loving, generous spirit and what she called "her special gift." "It grew beyond the two of us having a child," Connell said. "It was about the closeness with my mother, and our family having this experience that was unique and special."
What do you think? If you were in a similar situation, would you want your mom to act as your surrogate? Would you do the same for your daughter?
