    Reported by:

    After undergoing a myomectomy to remove 11 fibroid tumors, Kim hoped to conceive a son. She was successful. She wanted another son, and so underwent the procedure a second time, as fibroids grow continuously. But getting pregnant a second time proved to be a challenge, so she began to consider using a surrogate. Her cousin offered to be that surrogate for her. In this precious moment, Kim is catching her second son, born not of her, but to her all the same. http://www.kimjoverton.com
