A Utah grandmother became a surrogate mother to give her daughter and son-in-law the baby they so desperately wanted.
Julia Navarro, the 58-year-old grandmother, is carrying her granddaughter for her 32-year-old daughter Lorena McKinnon who struggled through three years of failed pregnancies.
When one potential surrogate dropped out, Lorena’s mother Julia Navarro stepped up to volunteer.
At 58, she had to go through three months of hormone treatment to get her body ready for baby. The embryo took on first try and Julia is now just weeks away from being a grandmother for the first time.
