I just read about Ines Perez who gave HERSELF a cesarean to save her baby. Wow, 2 shots of alchohol, a new knife and a strong desire to save her baby’s life gave this mom the courage to do this. Amazingly she and the baby survived.
This mom deserves a medal!

I can not imagine being in Carolyn’s shoes. This mom was hoping to have her last baby. She was pregnant, but with another couples child.
This was due to mix up at their fertility clinic. I can only imagine that everything during her pregnancy must be so bittersweet. The miracle of a growing life, but knowing you wouldn’t be able to keep the baby.
I think that Shannon Morell should think about getting Carolyn a medal, for going through such sacrifice. A pregnancy, cesarean birth and then giving the baby she has carried for 9 months to Shannon.
I think that Carolyn is doing the right thing. I hope I would have the courage to do the same thing if I was in that situation.
Certainly Carolyn DESERVES a Medal! Don’t you agree?

I thought my 9 pound 4 ounce baby was big. Well Ani has more than doubled my biggest baby.
She birthed a 19.2 ounce baby.
I definitely think she deserves a medal! Don’t you?
