Baby born in China four years after parents' death

Chinese kids are pushed into classes early in life

A baby was born in China to a surrogate - four years after his parents died in a auto crash, according to a new report.

At that point, a second major hurdle arose: Surrogacy has been illegal in China since 2001, when the Health Ministry banned it on "ethical principles", and no other hospital in the country was willing to take in the embryos. The infant was carried to term and delivered using the deceased couple's fertilized embryos via a surrogate mother from Laos, according to The Beijing News via South China Morning Post.

Eventually they found a surrogate in Laos but, according to Time magazine, the eggs had to be transported across the border by auto because no airline was willing to take the embryos, which were encased in a thermos of liquid-nitrogen.

There, doctors implanted two of the embryos into a 27-year-old Laotian woman who would be the surrogate mother.

They nicknamed him "Tiantian" (or "little sweet"), for the joy he brought after years of bitter legal battles and crushing loss.

Laos has become the latest impoverished nation in Asia to witness a flourishing but legally opaque commercial surrogacy industry after countries like Thailand, Cambodia and Nepal outlawed the practice in recent years.

She gave birth to Tiantian in China while visiting on a tourist visa, ensuring the boy's citizenship.

The child was kept in the hospital for 15 days, until all four grandparents gave blood and DNA tests, establishing the baby was indeed their grandson and that both parents were Chinese nationals. Last month, the family celebrated Tiantian's first 100 days by holding a small party.

The newspaper explained how the lack of precedent for a case of this kind had forced the couple's parents to go through a legal minefield before the surrogacy could proceed.

The parents of the child died in a auto crash in 2013.

"This child came into the world with sadness".

He said: "For sure we will tell him what happened - what choice do we have?"
