MAKE ME A GRANDMA!!
Denise Allen wants to be a grandma so badly, she's giving her whom to her daughter!
Melinda Arnold (34) was born without a uterus — but her biggest dream is to be a mother. Accodring to her mother, Denise,
"She was three years old when she first expressed a desire to be a mother."
For the past 12 years Melinda and her husband Andrew have tried everything to make their parenting dreams come true. The couple even moved cities to adopt — with no luck — and have tried to implanting into surrogates 3 times. SO SAD!
This womb transplant in the couple's final effort.
I know some people see this as risky. If I had a child I would never take that risk, but I don't. Mum and I talked about a transplant years ago, before we even knew if it would be possible, "
This is the first womb transplant to be preformed in Australia, and one of the first in the world. After the transplant is complete the couple must wait 12 months before attempting a pregnancy through IVF.
We hope the couple, and the future grandmother the best of luck! These guys truly deserve it!
