TEXAS — It sounds weird. But, a woman in Texas gave her daughter the biggest gift by being the surrogate of her own granddaughter.
At age 54, Tracey Thompson of Plano delivered a 6-pound 11-ounce girl after serving as surrogate for her 28-year-old daughter, Kelley McKissack.
“My lovely mom offered to give me to greatest gift I could ever have in my life,” said the daughter, Kelley McKissack.
After 28-year-old McKissack faced years of infertility issues and multiple IVF treatments resulting into three heartbreaking miscarriages, she turned towards her mother.
“I was nervous I wouldn’t have a successful pregnancy for my daughter and her husband. I had seen the emotions that the two of them had gone through, the heartbreak they had gone through… I didn’t want to fail,” the grandmother told the hospital.
Dead man alive: Romanian court rejects man’s claim he’s alive
BUCHAREST — A Romanian court has rejected a man’s claim that he’s alive, after he was officially registered as dead.
A court spokeswoman said Friday that 63-year-old Constantin Reliu lost his case in the northeast city of Vasului because he appealed too late. The ruling is final.
Media reported Reliu went to Turkey in 1992 for work and lost contact with his Romanian family. Hearing no news from her husband, his wife managed to get a death certificate for him in 2016.
Turkish authorities located Reliu this year with expired papers and deported him. When he arrived in Romania, he discovered he had been declared dead.
He was quoted as saying: “I am officially dead, although I’m alive, I have no income and because I am listed dead, I can’t do anything.”Follow @gorkhapost
