In September 2019, Idahoan Emily Crislip agreed to serve as a surrogate mother for a Chinese couple. After the birth of her son Camden, who will turn two in 2021, the girl made this decision. After giving birth to her own kid, the mother claimed that she reflected on how sad it must be for individuals who are unable to become parents.
The Chinese husbands who later became Emily’s clients were expected to travel to the United States in May 2020 to give birth, but this did not occur. The girl was born on May 18 and nobody came to get her, according to The Sun.
We let the clients watch the birth of the baby in the delivery room. In the hospital, they would have their own room, and I would have mine. My job was to be finished after she was born,” remarked Emily.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, aviation travel between the United States and China was suspended two months before to the delivery. The infant’s new parents begged Emily to look after the child so they wouldn’t have to leave her in a daycare center because they couldn’t travel to the United States.
Brandon and Emily agreed to watch the children for four weeks. It’s true that they had no idea the girl would live with them for almost a year. Knowing that she will eventually have to deliver the child to her biological parents, the mother does her best to create “barriers” with the child.
Additionally, Emily contacts the couple frequently from China so that the girl can grow accustomed to hearing her parents’ voices and appearance.
We certainly care for her and will always do so, but we recognize that she is not truly ours,” Emily added. We simply treat her as if she were our own because at this point in life, it is crucial to show her the necessary care and affection.
She acknowledges that she is unsure about her ability to serve as a surrogate mother once more after giving birth to Emily a year later. She would probably only collaborate with the same couple if she dared to do it again.
