Not everyone is able to start a family.
And that is probably because of illnesses that make it impossible for you to have a baby. Kayla Jones, 29 knows what that feels like. You see she had to go through a partial hysterectomy at the age of just 17 so it was quite difficult for her to have a baby.
So their only solution was to find a surrogate mother. However, that is not as easy as it sounds. So they were having a hard time finding the right person for the job.
My ovaries did not have to be removed so I am still able to have a child biologically mine, but I am unable to carry the child myself. That’s why my husband and I had to use a surrogate.

That is until her Mother-In-Law stepped in.
My husband and I married in 2012 and my mother-in-law always joked about being our surrogate. After a couple of our surrogate options did not work out, we started to take my mother-in-law more seriously.
After a lot of tests Cody’s Mother, Patty was set.
However, it didn’t work the first time.
We were devastated but decided to give it one more try. In May 2017 we found out we were pregnant! I am so amazed at this sweet miracle.
Having him via surrogacy was not always easy, and definitely not easy for Patty, but having him here makes all the hard days worth it.
7 months later, their baby boy Kross Allen Jones was born.
Right now it is hard to say if we will have any more, I would love a big family, but affording the process again will be tough.
We have also discussed adoption in the future, but that is also expensive. We will just lay it in God’s hands and he will show us the way.
The reaction to their story has been quite mixed at best.
For the most part we have had great reactions to our story. Some people find it ‘weird’ but if they understood the process it might not seem so weird to them.
And Grandma Patty is doing great.
“Patty is doing great! She starts work again next week.”
“She says she feels blessed to have been able to make the journey. And she has been so great.”
“I would like to add that our whole family has been wonderful.”
“They financially and emotionally supported us.”
“I love seeing Kross with all his grandparents.”
It might seem weird to many people.
But it is a truly heartwarming story.
However, most people don’t understand the whole process and think it is incest.
Which it clearly is not. What about you? What are your thoughts on this story?
