I know that nowadays nothing is impossible and one of these, that I can't believe that can really be happened. I just want to share it with you guys just I enjoy when I read this. When 25-year-old Angel Hebert learned last summer that she had a heart condition that would make it unsafe for her to get pregnant, she and her husband Brian Hebert, 29, were disappointed and very upset. But as the Portland Press Herald reports, an alternative wasn't far away. Angel's mother, 49-year-ild Linda Sirois, had been telling her daughter for years that she would happily become a surrogate if Angel couldn't become pregnant. Sirois is already a mother of four, including twins. Several fertility clinics rejected Sirois because of her age, but the Reproductive Science Center in Lexington, MA agreed after Sirois passed several tests. Sirois became pregnant the first time Ashley's egg, fertilized with Brian's sperm, was implanted, and proceeded to have what she said might have been her easiest pregnancy, with no morning sickness or complications. "I just saw it as I was babysitting for a few months," Sirois said. "It was their child all along. It was just a room for rent." http://www.pressherald.com/news/grandma-baby-doing-fine-after-nine-month-rental_2012-08-25.html

hi lyn, Well I think it is better that her mother will be the surrogate at least it is not others to them. In some country they even pay someone to be a surrogate mother. thanks for sharing happy mylotting

that seems to becoming a lot more common now. i cant remember the oldest lady that did it for her daughter but she was really up there in age that i wouldnt think it would be safe for her to do it for them!

That is amazing. I guess anything is possible these days. I think it is great that she did that for them but I am not so sure I would be able to be that selfless. I have had three children and it isn't a walk in the park..LOL. I guess we never know until we are in that situation what we will do though.

I actually considered surrogacy in the past when a friend of mine that desperately wanted to be a mother experienced multiple miscarriages. However, that never came to fruition because her life was cut way too short as a result of a heart attack when she was in her early forties. With that said, if I was still young enough and I knew that my children were stable enough to raise their own children, I can't think of any reason that I wouldn't volunteer to be a surrogate for either of them.

Well, that's love. A grandmother will do everything she can to be able to see her grandchildren healthy, ofcourse she's also a parent. She loves her family. That's what family are for, to help each other.

One of the most touching story I've ever read. The baby is so cute. I admire the grandmother for doing so. She's really great and the real parents are too lucky to have her carry the baby all along

I also saw that. I am a bit older so I definately wouldn't do it. I would however encourage them to adopt or find someone they thought appropriate. However I do think down the road there are complications....grandma might be awefully close to that little one which isn't all bad but a surrogate might not be as safe.

I could not imagine being a surrogate, nonetheless for my own Grandchild. That's amazing she was willing to do that and find a clinic. However, one must wonder why adoption wasn't an option?

Maybe because they still want from their own genes. Their lucky that the grandma is willing to have a room for her grandchild.
