Five months into her surrogate motherhood Crystal Kelley found out the child she was carrying had some birth defects. Soon after that she found out that the biological parents wanted her to abort the child. They even offered her $10,000 to do so.
Despite the cash offer and overwhelming, even harsh, pressure to have an abortion Ms. Kelley decided she simply couldn't end the life of the child she was carrying. "I knew she had a fighting spirit and I wanted to fight for her" said Ms. Kelley.
Ms. Kelley's ability to persevere through doubts, pressure, and even disgusting insults is inspiring. She fought for the life of the child inside her. She knew that life is always precious no matter what any misguided person might say.
Thankfully there is a happy ending to Ms. Kelley's story. The little girl whose life she saved has been adopted. She is happy and bringing joy to those who love her.
