In 2011, 29-year-old Crystal Kelley sat with two parents of 3 kids on a playground in Vernon, Connecticut, convinced that they were perfect candidates. This single and struggling mom had been searching for individuals who wanted to pay her to carry their baby.
At the beginning of the surrogacy process, everyone was ecstatic. However, tragic news would barge into their lives, leading to a series of dramatic events, only to be seen in the movies.
That beautiful day on the playground soon faded into a faint memory, now filled with pain. Doctors, five months into the pregnancy, revealed devastating news to the parents and the surrogate.
