Being able to give someone life is a miraculous gift that stays with a woman for a lifetime.
Being able to give someone else that gift who can’t do it themselves is nothing short of remarkable.
Six months after Jessica gave birth to her second son, she and her husband, Wardell decided that Jessica would become a surrogate mother for a couple that could not bare their own children.

Jessica’s ordeal may give an inclination why there’s so much controversy surrounding this type of surrogacy.

But three days after Jessica’s C-section, the truth slowly began to come out.
