Utah grandmother, Mary Ann Davis, is showing her love for her unborn grandchild and carrying it as a surrogate in the hopes of proving her love. KSL TV reported.
Nancy Hauck, 56, is carrying her grandchild after her son, Jeff, and his wife, Cambria, learned surrogacy would be their only option to have another baby, KSL TV reported.
Cambria and Jeff Hauck have already had four children by in vitro fertilization. They wanted another. Surrogacy was the only option. Jeff’s mom, KSL TV, made the life-changing decision.
After learning the news that Cambria could only have children via surrogate, Nancy opted to carry the couple’s last embryo and following many appointments with specialists, she became pregnant with her grandchild, “Today” reported.
“I could just feel this calling to offer to carry for them,”Nancy shared her story with the “Today“ show. “I knew I was too old. I knew it wasn’t going to be possible, even though that’s exactly what’s happened. I just felt I needed to tell them I would be willing to do it.”
Cambria told “Today”Her mother-in-law was a great source of support and she made her feel at peace.
“We knew that the only way that we could use our embryos was through having someone carry for us,”She said. “So when Nancy came to us, I know most people would probably be like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s crazy,’ but it didn’t feel like that. There was just so much peace around the whole conversation and around the whole experience.”
Nancy didn’t expect it to work out when she made the offer in late 2021 but sure enough, fate had other plans.
“The medical doctors determined that I would be a good candidate, which was a complete surprise to me for sure,”Nancy spoke today. “We all kind of had a feeling that it was going to work.”
Now, the Hauck family is expecting their clan to grow when Nancy gives birth this November.
“She is my mother-in–love.” Cambria told “Today.” “I hope that my story can help someone who is going through infertility and feeling hopeless in starting a family.
