BABY’S FIRST CRY, FOUR YEARS AFTER PARENTS DIED

How would you react if you get to know that a baby was born four years after his parents died?? You would go bonkers, right? So, did we! But China is the country of possibilities and they made this possible as well. [caption id="attachment_34137" align="aligncenter" width="767"]Baby source[/caption] Let's go in flashback and see what exactly happened. Shen Jie and Liu Xi had been married for two years when they decided to try in vitro fertilization. Five days before they were scheduled to transplant one of the fertilized embryos into Liu, the couple died in a car accident in March 2013 in the Chinese coastal province of Jiangsu. For the next three years, the parents of Shen and Liu fought for the rights to four frozen embryos left by their late children in a complicated and unprecedented legal case. After winning the case legally, they went the illegal way to get their grandson born through surrogacy, as it's illegal in China, but there is an underground channel from where they hired the surrogate. And finally, they saw their grandson, which they say is the last memory of their children.

They have decided to hide the reality from the child and will tell him that his parents live abroad until he's of an age to understand the whole scenario. Wonder what would be child's reaction when he'll get to know about this fascinating tale of his birth.  A baby is born after parent's death, a child of a miracle, or rather a child of science.
