A couple in the Plano city in Texas state has good news after arrival of their first born, a baby girl, who will have two women to call her mother.
For three years, Kelley McKissack and her husband tried to have a baby. Three times, McKissack miscarried.
The 28-year-old from Wylie talked with her fertility specialist about using a surrogate, but she had questions about potential legal issues.
Then she asked her doctor, what about my mother?
On Wednesday, 54-year-old Tracey Thompson, McKissack’s mom, gave birth to a healthy baby girl at The Medical Center of Plano.
The pregnancy inevitably had its unusual moments, Thompson said who has two adult children aged 28 and 30.
The baby’s name is Kelcey — a combination of Kelley and Tracey.
This is how baby Kelcey will have a grandmother who is also her mother!
Surrogacy was not a decision Thompson and her husband came to lightly. They talked to their church pastor, among other trusted friends, seeking advice.
