Sapna Singh, the genetic mother, has lupus, an autoimmune disease that prevented her from carrying a baby to term. So, when she and her husband, Sonny, were looking for a surrogate, she volunteered. Using hormone shots to reverse her menopause, Tejwani started something she hadn't done in 26 years. Dr. Damon Masaki, a maternal fetal medicine specialist, told her, "Don't worry, your womb will remember."
Remember it did. Due to her age, however, Tejwani's blood pressure rose, prompting doctors to deliver the baby a month early. Both grandmother and baby were fine, however. "It was very emotional when he came out," said Sapna Singh, 31. "I thought he was beautiful, just gorgeous, perfect." Her mother agrees. "He's so cute. I love him," she declared.
I know that these days, grandparents (and even great-grandparents) often take on significant roles in raising their grandkids, but I have to say, I think this definitely qualifies as going way above and beyond the call of duty. Kudos to Tejwani and congratulations to the whole family!
