Almost 39 weeks ago, Kristine Casey set out on an unusual journey to help her daughter and answer a spiritual calling.

Her goal was achieved late Wednesday when she gave birth to her own grandson at age 61.

Kinda weird, It worked out, but they took a risk using a much older surrogate.

Sorry, I know this sound offensive, but If I am looking for a surrogate I want a stallion not an old grey mayor thats been put out to pasture.

Well, I know eggs are effected by age, so in this case it did not matter as the eggs were from the mother. If the doctor said the womb of the grandmother was good to go, than I'm sure it was good to go.

Well...it doesn't sound offensive as much as misguided. A "stallion" isn't going to be much help in the surrogate dept. - wrong equipment and all that.

True, but Grandma was most likely willing to do it for free, hiring a younger surrogate would have cost the couple a tremendous amount of money.

I think what this woman did for her daughter was an incredible act of love.
