Kayla Jones has known since a benign tumor led to a partial hysterectomy at 17 that she wouldn’t be able to have children of her own. But it didn’t become a concern for her until she was 29, married, and wanted a family. The couple explored adoption and surrogacy and things didn’t work out, so Jones’ mother-in-law, Patty Resecker, came up with a surprising idea.
Resecker, 50, volunteered to be the surrogate for her own grandchild. She said it was a “no-brainer,” they just had to figure out how to do it because she was in menopause. So with the help of hormone injections, she got pregnant through IVF and became the oven for her son and daughter-in-law’s bun.
Grandma gave birth to her grandson, Kross, on December 30 and they’ve both been doing great since. It’s definitely unconventional, but there are all kinds of ways to become a family. “It’s their baby,” Resecker jokes. “I was just the valet.”
