This Utah family shared with their extended relatives and friends, in a manner that was extremely 21st century, that they would soon be expanding their family with the addition of a new member.
A lady called Kaitlyn Munoz made the decision to pursue a different course of action after unsuccessfully attempting to expand her family for a number of years.
In 2019, Munoz and her husband Miguel welcomed a happy and healthy son into the world. When Munoz’s family decided they wanted to grow by having another child, they learned that she had an autoimmune illness that prevents her from being able to carry a kid to term.
While Munoz was waiting for her ride in the parking lot of a Costco, she got a call that would forever alter the course of her life.
When she picked up the phone and saw that it was her own mother on the other end of the line, she couldn’t believe what she heard her mother propose.
Her mother made a once-in-a-lifetime offer to carry her daughter-in-law Munoz’s kid, who would be her granddaughter.
Munoz freely confessed that the timing of his mother’s phone call was really bizarre as “that was really a challenging day for me. It’s almost as if she could feel it,” Smith’s daughter said.
When it was eventually time for her to give birth to her granddaughter, there wasn’t a single person in the room who didn’t have tears in their eyes.
Smith, who was pregnant for the eighth time, said that she was taken aback by the fact that her recuperation was superior to anything she had experienced in the past.
She said that this recuperation was the smoothest one she has had to far.
“The following day I didn’t even feel like I had a kid,” Smith revealed, referring to her experience after giving birth.
After going through such an extraordinary ordeal together, the family has reported feeling closer than they ever had before, despite the fact that the infant and her parents now reside in Texas, while her grandparents remain in Utah.
