According to an article published by Yahoo! Shine on August 21, a baby boy was born 19 years after he was conceived.
Burke began trying to conceive a child of her own at age 39, but wasn't successful, so she turned to adoption. That's when an Oregon couple offered to donate four frozen embryos they had remaining from an IVF procedure they underwent 18 years before. Burke decided accept the embryos based on the advice of her attorney.
Doctors thawed the four embryos, which were frozen at two days old, and developed them until they were five days old to prepare them to be implanted, and surprisingly all four the 19-year-old embryos survived.
Burke had two of the four donated embryos implanted, which resulted in the birth of her 9-month-old son, Liam James.
The Oregon couple that donated the embryos to Burke and their 18-year-old twin daughters that were born from their original IVF procedure haven't met Liam, yet, but Burke reportedly keeps them update on how he is doing.
