Baby born four years after parents died in vehicle crash

Baby born four years after parents died in vehicle crash

In December 2016, the surrogacy agency receeved the embryos, which it drove to Laos in early 2017.

The couple had chose to try in vitro fertilization after two years of marriage but, five days before one of the fertilized embryos were scheduled to be transplanted, they died in a vehicle accident in March 2013.

The couple's grieving parents had to file two lawsuits to get hold of and use the four fertilised embryos produced by the couple.

After a judge granted the embryos, they then encountered several other problems.

The Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital agreed to release the embryos - but only to another hospital, according to China Daily.

"The risk of suing the hospital was too great", Shen Xinnian, the father of Mr. Shen, told the newspaper.

There was no legal precedent for custody of frozen embryos should the parents die.

After the accident, their parents fought a long legal battle to be allowed to use the embryos. During her pregnancy, the surrogate mother traveled to Guangzhou, China, on a tourist visa.

The biological parents had embryos frozen that they hoped would one day become their children.

.

They nicknamed him "Tiantian" (or "little sweet"), for the joy he brought after years of bitter legal battles and crushing loss.

According to The Guardian, the new grandparents had to undergo DNA testing to prove their relationship with the baby to maintain custody. Last month, the family celebrated Tiantian's first 100 days by holding a small party.

The four grandparents-in-waiting eventually chose to enlist the services of a surrogacy agency in Laos, where it is legal.

Speaking to Beijing News, Shen Xinan, Tiantian's paternal grandfather, told of his intention to reveal to Tiantian what happened to his parents when he is older and that, until the right time arrives, he will tell them that they are overseas. Instead, they would tell him that his parents had gone overseas.

"This boy is destined to be sad on his arrival into the world", he said.
