Čudesna je i činjenica da je in vitro oplodnja u ovom slučaju uspjela iz prvog pokušaja te da je trudnoća prošla u savršenom redu

Cecile Eledge rodila je svoju unuku. Možda zvuči kao radnja meksičke sapunice, no priča je stvarna i dogodila se u Nebraski.

"Počelo je kao šala. Moja mama uvijek nam je govorila da je uživala u trudnoćama, a spominjala je i da želi unuke. Na koncu je u tome odigrala glavnu ulogu", objašnjava 61-godišnjakinjin sin i otac djevojčice Ume, Matthew Eledge. 
Jajašce je donirala Lea, sestra Matthewovog životnog partnera Elliota.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Every day of my life I try to reside in a place of gratitude and appreciation. And occasionally there are points in life in which blessings and abundance seem to come flooding in so rich and deep that you are absolutely stunned and overwhelmed. This last year Matthew and I begun discussing hypothetically the idea of having children. After we both acknowledged this was something we wanted, a deep yearning came over us. We began exploring our options. One day at brunch we mentioned this casually to my family, and without pause my sister Lea said she would do whatever we needed to make this dream come true. On July 2nd my sister completed all the necessary preliminary steps and at 7:30am that morning went in for surgery. We recieved 25 eggs from her. The eggs deemed mature were immediately fertilized, and currently we are waiting to find out which ones are viable. My baby sister is a true angel in our life. She has stood proudly by my side, and she has always filled my life with such joy and tender caring. Now, she has offered us the greatest gift we could ever ask for: the chance to create children that will carry on the story of our ancestors and families, to see reflected in our children the beauty of the people that came before us, and to see in the face of our kin a resemblance of our mothers and fathers. A familiarity.. Nothing is guaranteed, we have a long journey still before us, but we couldn't be more grateful to my sister for giving us this chance. Feeling so blessed. Feeling so grateful.

"Moja mama je heroj ove priče jer je podnijela veliku žrtvu za nas. No, tu je i sestra mog partnera koja nam je velikodušno donirala jajašce", kaže Matthew.

"Ima nešto u ženama što je nezamjenjivo, snažno, čudesno i što liječi. Hvala Bogu što smo okruženi tako divnim ženama i što će naša djevojčica rasti s njima i učiti od njih", iskreno će Matthew.

Matthew i Elliot dvije su godine razmišljali o roditeljstvu prije, no što su krenuli u ostvarivati svoju želju. Htjeli su da dijete nosi što više njihovog genetskog materijala te su Matthewova sperma i jajašce Ellotove sestre bili savršen spoj. 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I've been scrolling through these pictures non-stop ever since we received them last night, and I can't even believe this is real life. As most of you know, this year my sister underwent a surgery that allowed us to retrieve several of her eggs. Several healthy embryos were created out of those eggs. Then, Matthew's mother stepped forward and offered us the greatest gift of all. She offered to carry our baby for us. Our first daughter, being created in the womb of her grandmother. It has been such a beautiful journey. We are so incredibly grateful. I can't even begin to describe and capture all of the feelings I have looking at these images. What an honor it is to have these two women in our life. What a beautiful gift this has all been. We are so excited that Uma Louise will be joining us earth side here in a few weeks. I love her deeply and immensely already. Photographs by @arielpanowicz

Iznenadila ih je Cecile koja se sama ponudila da bude surogat majka. Iako je imala 60 godina i već deset godina bila u menopauzi liječnici su procijenili da je savršeno zdrava te da može iznijeti trudnoću. Čudesna je i činjenica da je in vitro oplodnja uspjela iz prvog pokušaja. 

"Matthew je divan otac. Nisam znao da ga mogu voljeti još dublje, no kad ga promatram s našom djevojčicom, baš to se događa", zaključuje Elliot.  

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Skin-to-skin with you gazing into my eyes. I am excited to watch you grow, but I would be happy like this forever. �

Na koncu, no ne i manje važno, djevojčica ne odrasta na umjetnom mlijeku, već joj ga osigurava obiteljska prijateljica koja ima bebu. Izdaja se i šalje mlijeko malenoj Umi.
