CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) – What was once a rare occurrence is now becoming more common in the United States.
The practice of using a surrogate to have a baby may be something people don’t always want to speak about openly, but we at FOX 32 are close with a couple who does.
Their goal is to help other childless couples who can’t have a baby.
We bring you the story of our own Lou Canellis and his wife Monica and baby Gia, the child they didn’t think would be possible.
“She acts like her, she looks like me, that’s why she’s so cute,” Lou said.
She is the baby Monica and Lou thought they could only dream about. When they married 13 years ago, Monica knew she would never be able to bear her own biological child. Being a childless couple was something they accepted as their fate.
