Baby born four years after his parents’ death.

After their only children died, two elderly couples have gone to extreme lengths to carry on their family line through surrogacy, reported Beijing News on Tuesday.
.
Shen Jie and Liu Xi died in a road accident on March 20, 2013. It happened five days before a scheduled transplantation that would embed embryos created using IVF, to the woman’s womb to help the infertile couple have children.

As Shen and Liu were both the single children of their families, the embryos preserved at Nanjing Gulou Hospital became their grieved parents’ only hope of carrying on their family line. .

The two couples then recovered the embryos from the Nanjing Gulou Hospital and kept them in a liquid nitrogen container. A Laotian surrogate mother was chosen to carry the embryos.

On Dec 9, 2017, the Laotian woman gave birth to a baby boy in a hospital in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong province and named Tiantian (literally sweetness) in the hopes of bringing happiness and sweetness to the bereaved families.
