PLANO, TEXAS — A 54-year-old woman gave birth to her granddaughter Wednesday afternoon after agreeing to carry the child for her daughter.
Kelley McKissack, 28, and her husband had tried for three years to have a baby of their own then turned to fertilization treatments.
“After numerous failed attempts we moved over to infertility treatment, which did turn into pregnancies but all turned into miscarriages,” Kelley McKissack said.
The couple’s last of three miscarriages happened on Christmas in 2014.
Then McKissack’s mother, Tracey Thompson, offered to carry her daughter’s child as a surrogate.
