She says she ‘hit the lottery’ with daughter Delaney.
In 2013, Andrea Ott-Dahl initially served as a surrogate for friends of hers that were having trouble getting pregnant. Little did she know that a certain turn of events would change her life forever.
Two months into the pregnancy, Ott-Dahl found out the child would be born with Down syndrome. Upon hearing the news, the baby’s mothers decided they no longer wanted to have the baby and urged Ott-Dahl to terminate the pregnancy.
That’s when she made a decision that would not only change her life, but save the unborn baby, too.
Surrogate mother who kept a baby with Down syndrome after the parents told her to have an abortion is sharing her story in a new book.
