GREENSBORO — After years of infertility, a 50-year-old woman in North Carolina is now the mother of a healthy girl.
In a press releaseCone Health reported that Greensboro couple Susie Troxler and Tony Troxler welcomed Lily Antonia Troxler to their home on Sept. 29.
Susie stated that it was surreal. “Everything had come together to make that moment happen. It was difficult to comprehend that we are more than just husband/wife, we are’mom’/’daddy.
Although the Troxlers were determined to have a family, it was not possible after 13 years of marriage.
That is, until Dr. Carolyn Harraway Smith comes to her aid.
Troxler replied, “Towards end of my appointment,” Dr. Harraway Smith asked Troxler, “Is there anything else?” “This baby wouldn’t have been here if she hadn’t asked this question.”
The group discussed a plan of actions and decided to attempt in vitro fertilization.
The couple tried IVF for two years without success.
However, they were able to have their last embryo.
Susie said, “We are honored that we can be the parents of someone such as her and to have the opportunity to witness all of this because medically she was impossible, but it’s possible, but she is here.”
