- Rebekah Bragdon Adamson learned that she couldn't carry a baby full term and wanting to be a mom so much broke her heart
- Rebekah and her husband Bobby were shattered when they heard the news and considered alternatives to have a baby
- Rebekah's sister Brianna selflessly offered to carry her sister's baby for her
Rebekah Bragdon Adamson had had surgery which resulted in her being unable to carry a baby to full term. Rebekah, 34 and her husband Bobby's, 38, hopes were shattered when they heard the news.
"I cried for three days when I found out I couldn’t have a baby. Nobody told me when I had the surgery that I wouldn’t be able to have children.
"I can get pregnant, I just wouldn’t make it through because the baby would be pressing against the bladder and the chance of infections would give us a very low chance of making it through."
Her younger sister Brianna Bragdon, 28, came to the rescue. She had a 3-year-old boy and didn't want any more children, according to Metro.co.uk.
Rebekah added: "My sister has a three-year-old son and doesn’t want any more children. Her pregnancy was smooth so we mentioned to her that she would have been the perfect person because the baby would be carried by family.
"‘We didn’t think it would actually ever happen then she said she would think about it and make sure it was right for her.
"We knew it was a lot to ask but she came back and said she had strong feelings that she wanted to be the one to carry the baby."
Brianna is now in her third trimester of pregnancy and said she has had a tough time during Covid-19 and can't wait to meet her niece and to no longer be pregnant.
“I’m excited for my sister and excited to not be pregnant any more. I’ll be a big part of my niece’s life. I can't wait to meet her,” Brianna said.
