Grandma gives birth to her own grandchild
Last week, a few days after Emily’s 32nd birthday, daughter sat next to mother, holding hands in the delivery room.
And Elle Cynthia Jordan was born.
‘‘She looks just like you! She looks just like you!’’ Emily shouted, running from the delivery room to introduce their newborn to Mike.
Reutzel is recovering well. She even says she'd consider doing it again.
‘‘When I watch both of them hold that baby and look into her face, it’s like everything I could have imagined wanting for them — better than I could have imagined,’’ she says, her eyes filling with tears.
‘‘This is what it was all about for me.’’
