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.
