- A woman identified as Lisa Rutherford has shown that mothers can go out of their way to ensure that their children are happy
- Lisa's daughter, Kelsi, was finding it difficult to conceive and she decided to help her carry her baby in her womb
- Interestingly, Kelsi also conceived when her mother was carrying her child, and they both gave birth to baby girls
A woman in the United States whose daughter was finding it difficult to conceive decided to help out by being a surrogate mother so her daughter could have a child.
When Lisa Rutherford, then 52, discussed the idea with her daughter, Kelsi, the latter told her there was no way she was going to allow her to go through such risk, Mirror reports.
Lisa, however, was hellbent on helping out, and because Kelsi wasn't making headway in her quest to conceive, she finally accepted her mother's help.
“It was the strangest thing, realising that I was seeing my mum being implanted with her own grandchild.”
Luckily for Kelsi, she also conceived when her mother was carrying her baby and when she shared the news with Lisa, she was happy that her daughter would be having two kids.
“I thought she might say ‘What the heck have I gone through all this for? But, of course, she was thrilled. She said ‘We’re both going to be having your babies!’”
Lisa gave birth to a baby girl, and eight weeks later her daughter also welcomed a baby girl.
Kelsi expressed gratitude to her mother for her selflessness and for teaching her how to be a great mum.
The mother-of-two said:
“With her sacrifice and selflessness, she’s shown me just what being a mum should be. I hope that I can be as good a mum to our girls as she has been to me.”
