& # 39; This little baby would not have lived if we threw it away & # 39 ;: why the couple gave up their embryos to complete strangers, despite their fear, they would feel & # 39; that is my child & # 39; once it was born
- Emma and Richard Austin struggled for ten years trying to conceive
- They gave up the idea until strangers offered their unused embryos
- Now they have a son named Henry and friends for whom they are forever grateful
A few have revealed why they made the life-changing decision to transfer their embryos to total strangers.
Jessica and JP DiZane married in 2013 and immediately started trying for a baby, but turned to IVF after not getting pregnant for two years.
After having two children through the procedure, the couple was faced with the option of disposing of their remaining embryos, donating to science or to a couple in need.
A mutual friend warned them of the struggle of the Brisbane and Emma and Richard Austin couple.
The Emma and Richard Austin couple from Brisbane had been struggling to have children for ten years and tried everything they could – through IVF, adoption and artificial insemination
The couple had been struggling to have children for ten years and tried it in every way possible – through IVF, adoption and artificial insemination.
After 10 years, they closed the door to the idea of having their own child – instead they turned to each other and Mr. Austin's son from an earlier relationship.
Mrs. Austin told me Australian story it was painful not to be able to give a child for her husband, or grandchild for her parents.
But in the end the two couples met and discussed the possibility of using the remaining embryo.
Mr. Austin initially had doubts about raising a child who would not be genetically his.
Mrs. Austin, who had raised a stepson who was not genetic of her, felt differently about it.
Mrs. DiZane immediately said that she and her husband felt comfortable with the Austin family and knew they would agree to hand over their embryos.
& # 39; You have experienced so much and we can give you this for free, & # 39; said Mrs. DiZane.
Jessica and JP DiZane married in 2013 and immediately started trying a baby and turned to IVF after being unable to have a child for two years. After having two children during the procedure, the couple was confronted with the option of disposing of the embryos, donating to science or donating to a couple in need – and that's how they are Mrs. Austin
All four of them accompanied them together – and Mrs. DiZane started asking herself questions.
& # 39; We had to think about & # 39; how would I feel if Savannah and Cohen have a brother or sister & # 39;, & # 39; how would I feel if I see Emma pregnant & # 39; and & # 39; how would I feel if I heard the news about the birth of Emma and Richard & # 39; s baby, "she said.
& # 39; But once we made the decision to donate – and especially to Emma and Richard – the emotion of what we can give them was heavier than any other emotion or the feeling of "that's my child," said Mrs. DiZane.
There was no contract or payment set up between the couple, but the DiZane hoped that they could see the future child of the Austin and were part of their lives.
Eventually Mrs. Austin went for the embryo transfer and two weeks later she found out she was pregnant.

She and Mr. Austin were scared after eight weeks of bleeding, but the child's heartbeat was still there.
Mrs. Austin regularly sent the DiZane family updates about her pregnancy.
She gave birth by caesarean section to a boy named Henry.
Two weeks after Henry's birth, Mr. and Mrs. DiZane met the little boy who was concerned about the Austins.
Mr. Austin said looking at Mr. and Mrs. DiZane who held Henry, it reminded him that their child could have been.
However, Mrs. DiZane did not say for a moment that she considered Henry her son.
& # 39; This little embryo would never have had a life if we had just thrown it away, so it is heart-warming for us to think that they are also going to give us a gift by giving him a life that we never would give, & # 39; she said.
Mr. and Mrs. Austin said they want Henry to know exactly how he came into this world because it makes him special.
The couple said they would never be able to thank Mr. and Mrs. DiZane for what they gave them.
