China: Baby born four years after parents die in vehicle crash

China: Baby born four years after parents die in vehicle crash

For Shen and Liu's extended families, the frozen embryos became their only hope for a new generation.

Couple Shen Jie and Liu Xi had been married for two years when they made a decision to try for a child via IVF. Since no precedent existed, they were eventually granted the embryos.

The Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital agreed to release the embryos - but only to another hospital, according to China Daily.

"The chance of suing the hospital was too great", " Shen Xinnian, " the dad of Mr. Shen, told the paper.

"There are thresholds for practicing every technology, and without the threshold, which we must strictly abide by, the technology runs the risk of being abused", Ding told the newspaper.

There Are Parking Restrictions Outside Kate's Hospital AKA Royal Baby Soon
Parking restrictions have started appearing outside the hospital where the duchess is due to deliver her baby this month. Last October, Kensington Palace confirmed that Kate Middleton would be expecting her third baby in April 2018.

As surrogacy remains illegal in China, his grandparents had to seek expert medical help overseas. After their death, their parents fought a legal battle to use the embryos and hire a surrogate to carry them. In December 20-16, the surrogacy service received the embryos, which it drove to Laos in early 20 17.

Then came the next hurdle: who would be the child's surrogate mother? They were killed five days before they were scheduled to transplant one of the fertilized embryos. To avoid any citizenship issues, the surrogate was later brought back to China on a tourist visa to give birth.

The embryo was implanted into the womb of a surrogate mother in Laos before the baby boy, named Tiantian, was born at a hospital in Guangzhou, China, in December. The grandparents are said to be very happy to have Tiantian, whose name means "sweetness" in Chinese.

The child's grandparents had to submit blood samples and take DNA tests to prove that he is their grandson and that his parents were Chinese citizens in order for him to obtain citizenship.

Eventually, the future grandparents worked with a surrogacy agency and decided on Laos, a country bordered by Thailand and Vietnam where commercial surrogacy was legal.
