Despite setbacks in her native Spain, where surrogacy is forbidden by law, Ana – who chose to have a surrogate in the US – knows the process has been worthwhile, according to Reuters.
“I’m happy!” she gushed. “Surrounded by diapers, bottles, all pink, covered in bows and smelling of perfume, how wonderful! Also, Aless Lequio loved babies and would go insane every time he saw one. He told me, ‘I’m going to call my first daughter Ana, like you mommy.'”
Can Ana imagine welcoming more of Aless’ children one day? Never say Never.
“My son wanted five kids,” she told the outlet. “Maybe one day we’ll have a boy.”
And Ana kept thinking about what it means for her to fulfill Aless’ last wish.
“I failed my son and I couldn’t save him, but what I swore to him with my life I did and no one can take that from me,” she continued. “And I don’t think there’s anyone in the world who sees this beautiful girl, who is so desired by her Father in Heaven and by me on earth and by all who love me, won’t think the same way. “
She added, “It’s something only a father or mother who has lost a child will fully understand.”
