The advance of embryonic science has allowed its conception.
Science has so many edges that mastering them all is impossible. The cinema usually introduces us to mad scientists who revolutionize the world, and on many occasions, some news seems to be taken from the plot of a fantastic movie. This, perfectly, could be this case. And if not, judge for yourself. What would you tell me if I told you that two babies from the year 1992 were born? His story is a mix of miracle of science and unconditional love.
Embryos from the past to give life to babies of the future
The most profane speak of a miracle of science, since the process of fertilizing an egg and its subsequent freezing in a laboratory must be so precise that when it comes true it seems like magic. And this is what has happened on this occasion, according to information published in the Insider digital medium. Timothy and Lydia they started their adventure in this world in April of the year 1992when their Biological parents donated their frozen embryos to the National Embryo Donation Centera religious NGO from the United States.
The parents of these twinsRachel and Philip Ridgeway, had three children when they decided to go for the fourth and ended up resorting to said center, since the task of conception was complicated in a natural way. The money that they had saved for an in vitro fertilization treatment was allocated to the obtaining a frozen embryoalthough chance saw fit to give them a new child naturally. His reaction? They explain it themselves, in statements collected by the previously mentioned medium:
We have always thought: ‘Let’s have as many children as God wants.’ We think: ‘We are not done yet if this is God’s will.’
The Twinswho were born in October 2022, will be able to say that They are only 3 and 5 years oldrespectively, less than their parentsAt least from a strictly scientific point of view. The curiosity is that the embryos donated by the christian center are part of the section called ‘special consideration’, which are often discarded by couples, since they come from parents with a history of genetic disorders. Nevertheless, Rachel assures that this has not been an impediment:
We found that these children are often not noticed, because many parents wonder what they might have. We didn’t care if they were considered perfect or not. There is a possibility that they may have some genetic disorder, but we don’t care.
