61 Year Old Grandma- cum- Mamma

Submitted by Suparna on February 15, 2011 – 10:27 pmNo Comment



In today’s world of ruling science and technology, nothing is impossible. And this fact has been proven by a family wherein the grandmother has given birth to her grandson. Surprising? Shocking, rather? Well, no need to be. A US woman, aging 61, has given birth to her grandson by acting surrogate for her daughter who is infertile. Kristine Casey, a 61year old US resident, is the oldest mother of the living memory, and also has set an example for all the orthodox thinkers and non- believers of science by acting surrogate for her young daughter Sara Connell, who has been unsuccessful to have a baby since two years.

While the biological parents of the child are Mr. and Mrs. Connell, the son- in- law and daughter of the great lady Mrs. Casey, the child had spent 9 wonderful months in the womb of its maternal grandma. Though it took a lot for Mrs. Casey to prepare for this pregnancy and delivery, she did it just for her beloved daughter. The surrogate mommy had her last pregnancy, before this one, 30 years back, and was almost 10 years past menopause. Yet, she agreed to get her hormonal replacement therapy done to prepare her uterus for conceiving the baby that was implanted in her. The delivery, according to the doctors, was uncomplicated, and the profoundness of the emotional base of this delivery eased it up even more.

Both, Mr. Casey and Mr. Connell, however were reluctant to such a decision of their females, but when they understood that science was going to help, they agreed to support them and permit this most unique kind of pregnancy. The pain of being infertile and not giving birth to her own child was making her numb, but the generosity and understanding and most importantly the love of her mother healed every single trauma, said Mrs. Ara Connell, the biological mother of the surrogated child.

It was a truly splendid sight to see the mamma, the baby, and the grandma-cum-mamma unite in happy tears as the little Connell was born.
