Texas: Sounds weird, right? But Tracey Thompson, 54, gave her daughter the biggest gift by being the surrogate of her granddaughter.
After 28-year-old Kelley McKissack faced years of infertility issues and multiple IVF treatments resulting into three heartbreaking miscarriages, she turned towards her mother.
“My lovely mom offered to give me to greatest gift I could ever have in my life,” said the daughter.
"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.
She gave birth to Kelcey McKissack, a healthy 6-pound-11-ounce baby girl, on January 6 at The Medical Center of Plano in Texas.
