Fertility Clinic Mistake Ends Up Good
It made me feel good to read that a mistake by a fertility clinic in Michigan ended with a happy ending. The biologic parents created an in-vitro embryo that was accidentally implanted into another woman at the clinic. A few days later the clinic notified Carolyn Savage that she was carrying Paul and Shannon Morell's embryo. She never considered terminating the pregnancy or trying to fight for custody.
A 5lb 3oz healthy baby boy was born Thursday to Carolyn Savave and the Morells now have a new baby. They call Carolyn Savage their "guardian angel." This is how you turn a lemon into lemonade. If we can keep the lawyers away...this is an example how how to go with the flow and live life to the fullest.
Congratulations to to very cool families.
