As moms, we sometimes go to extreme lengths to make our children's dreams come true. In the case of Maria da Gloria in Goiânia, Brazil, that meant becoming a surrogate at age 51 for her own daughter.
As the Daily Mail reports, 34-year-old Fernanda Madeiros is unable to carry a child after having her uterus removed as a teenager due to a health issue. Married at age 20, Fernanda tried to adopt but was turned down.
Now, her dream of having a child has finally come true. Mrs. Da Gloria agreed to be a surrogate as a "gift" and the second round of IVF was successful. She gave birth via Caesarian at 36 weeks to healthy twin girls.
Are there any circumstances under which you would serve as a surrogate?
