Breanna, originally from Illinois, learned that she could never carry a pregnancy to term. Her heart broken by the news, the young woman turned to her mother. Julie, 51, then agreed to become the surrogate mother of her own daughter and therefore give birth to her own grandchild.
On November 2, after 9 months of pregnancy, the big day arrived: the fifty-something gave birth to Briar Juliette, to the delight of Breanna.
“My mother was a real rockstar during a difficult childbirth. The sacrifices she made to bring this little slice of paradise to our world takes my breath away. Holding my daughter in my arms, my heart bursts. The feeling that I would do absolutely whatever is necessary for this child shines in me when I look at her, and reminds me of what my mother did for me, ”explains the now mom on Instagram.
