The mother who had to give back her baby after a fertility clinic error is now expecting twins via a surrogate!

Carolyn and Sean Savage of Ohio, the couple who gave up a child that was not biologically theirs following a fertility clinic embryo mix-up, announced yesterday that they’re now expecting twins via surrogate! The couple are thanking their “guardian angel” who is their surrogate. This is such a happy ending to a terrible story!

Carolyn and Sean found out in early 2009 that the baby she was carrying after undergoing IVF was not their own, as Carolyn had been implanted with an embryo genetically belonging to another couple using the same clinic, Shannon and Paul Morells. Despite being advised to have an abortion, Carolyn, a devout Christian, gave birth to the baby boy, Logan, and handed hom over to his biological parents in the hospital.

“Jennifer, our carrier—our partner and guardian angel—has become part of our family. We are in awe of her generosity and our gratitude is beyond measure,” the couple said in their statement. “When we brought Logan into this world, we came to understand his life was a gift. We are humbled again as one very special woman is giving this same gift of family to us.”
