This couple in Tennessee just had a baby. Which isn't really news by itself, I mean, babies are great and every parent thinks their kid is the best, but, there's something special about this kid.
Because she was technically conceived on October 14th, 1992, but on November 25th, 2017, she was born.
Emma Wren Gibson was a frozen embryo biding her time until she could fully gestate inside a human body. Her mother, 26-year-old Tina Gibson was just one year old when Emma was first conceived.
The bouncing little baby you see in the video above was thawed out on March 13th of 2017 and successfully transferred to Tina's uterus with an FET (frozen embryo transfer) procedure, which was conducted by Dr. Jeffrey Keenan courtesy of the NEDC, a faith-based program that specializes in embryo adoption.
"The NEDC has been privileged to work with the Gibsons to help them realize their dreams of becoming parents. We hope this story is a clarion call to all couples who have embryos in long-term storage to consider this life-affirming option for their embryos."
For Tina, the thought that her baby could've been her friend if her embryo wasn't frozen, is surreal. But the procedure is helping many couples realize their dream of having children and raising a family.
"In that respect, it’s like we are frozen in time here and bringing forth life after being in that time capsule," Carol Sommerfelt, NEDC embryology consultant, said.
Even though there's a perfectly scientific explanation for Emma's birth, people are still super fascinated with her.
Others started sharing their own embryo transfer stories.
While others used it as an opportunity to crack some jokes because, this is the internet, after all.
But my favorite so far...
