THE BEST SOLUTION

A friend in my painting class told me a rather strange story about her little grandson. Having a grandson is nothing special but in this case it is.

Jeanine has 3 children one girl and two boys. They are all grown up and out of the house. Her daughter is married and wanted badly a baby since several years unfortunately without any success. Then came the confirmation of the doctor, she can't have any children. A catastrophe for her.

One of her sons was in a relationship but they had no intention to have a baby yet. The other was just 21 and had a girlfriend of 17. And as it happens, those who don't want children they get them without any problems, and sometimes very quick.

This happened to the 21 year old boy Philip and his 17 year old girlfriend Lisa. She got pregnant ! A catastrophe, both far too young and both studying. There was only one solution ... an abortion.

When Jeanine heard about the pregnancy of Lisa, she had the best idea of her life. She invited the girl and talked to her and asked her if she would agree to have the baby. First the girl was very reluctant to the idea, and her son too, but there was the sister who couldn't have children and she was ready, and eager to adopt her brother's child together with her husband and raise it as their own.

After some hesitation, finally Lisa agreed, and after 9 months she gave birth to a healthy little boy. Immediately after the birth she gave it to Philip's sister who from birth on now had a little boy. She and her husband were so happy and of course my friend too. Not only she had a healthy grandson but it was also her own blood.

Today they all live in harmony. The biological mother has disappeared shortly after the birth. The little boy is meanwhile 4 and happy with his parents. The biological father considers him like a nephew and behaves like an uncle.

A strange story but with a very happy end !

An amazing story featuring a very brave 17yr old girl and a happy ending for all. Especially the little boy.

That must have made so many people happy but I wonder how the biological mother will feel about it when she is ready to start her own family.

It is interesting. I think it would be allowed here, so long as no payment other than expenses were paid, but I doubt there would be any legal right to keep the child if the mother wanted it back until the child was formally adopted by the non biological parents. It could all be terribly complicated but in this case, everyone seems happy and it's a great little story.

That's a strange story indeed! But everyone is happy and I think that matters most.

A strange story but more common than people would think. My daughter's friend had a teenage brother who had a child too. His dad and second wife raised the boy as their own and Johnny treated him like a nephew and acted like the uncle. Enjoy your weekend. xo

That worked out very beautifully. I do hope the bio. mother knows she did the right thing and hope she continues to make good decisions from now on.

Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction but it all worked out for the best.

That al did turn out happy except for the birth mother. She will always remember having the baby and not keeping it. She should be glad though that her child is well cared for and gets a lot of family love. In some of the U.S. States I believe the father/uncle could be imprisoned for 'statutory rape.'

I love a story with a happy ending. There's a new show on TV here where they track down birth parents and reunite the grown children with their biological parents. Last week there was a couple that had been together since high school. I think when they were 16 she got pregnant and gave the baby up for adoption. They stayed together and ended up marrying and having three other children. Anyway, the show found the biological son that they gave up for adoption. He's now in his 30's and had a happy life, but was glad to meet the family he never knew.
