Dreams are just dreams, dreams are unreal, but some dreams do come true! If you are someone who believes that dreams are not real, then you have to read this heartwarming Story. It’s a story about a UK couple Katy-Anne and John who longed to have a child of their own.
In 2010, Katy had a hysterectomy performed as part of the treatment of small-cell cervical cancer. Since then, the couple was certain they wouldn’t have a baby. But, an astonishing lottery win in 2014 changed their fortune dramatically. John, a bank worker, won a whopping lottery jackpot worth £32,000. The bumper prize paved the way for them to have a surrogate child. “I didn’t even know my husband played the Postcode Lottery. Without that win, we could never have Grayson” says Katy.
The surrogate mother named Sarah Holder, which they located through a non-profit organization, brought them the most amazing gift of life, their son Grayson. Katy excitedly told the media - “And we were so happy it was Sarah carrying him. I have known her for two years now – and Grayson will always know his Aunty Sarah. We were delighted that someone was prepared to do this for us.” Since it was not legal to pay to the surrogate mother, the couple decided to pay for all her expenses and medical treatments. Sarah says: “Everyone has made a big deal about the fact I’m quite young – but I don’t see it as a big thing. When I gave birth people said, ‘Don’t you love him?’ and I said no.” Grayson was born through cesarean section at Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham.
The couple is thankful for the lottery win that helped them fulfilled their biggest dream. They used to feel defeated by the expense of surrogate treatments. But, the lottery win was a life-changing event for them. The couple not only thanks the lottery win but also Sarah, who helped them bringing this joy into the world.
Rarely do we see such heartwarming stories that leave us in teary joy. For this couple, the lottery prize was surely a helping hand that fulfilled the dream. Not only is this a heartwarming story, but it is an interesting take on what to do with a lottery win.
£32,000 really isn't enough to change your life. But it is big enough to do something significant in your life. Funding a life-changing event like this is a great way to use a jackpot in the 1-3 years' salary range.
