This Chinese baby is born four years after their parent’s death
In March 2013, five days before Liu Xi and her husband Shen Jie were scheduled for the transplantation of one fertilized embryo into her womb, the young couple died in a car crash. Their untimely death thus put a definitive end to their prospect of building a family. The parents of the deceased couple, however, were not yet ready to give up the chance of having a grandchild that would not just carry the memories of its parents but also allow the family bloodline to be continued. Following a protracted legal battle both sets of parents won the rights over the four frozen embryos left by their late children.
