Woman Gives Birth to Wrong Baby

Further proof that the truth is stranger than fiction: A woman in Ohio recently gave birth to a stranger’s baby. This past February, Carolyn Savage visited a fertility clinic outside of Ohio, where she was mistakenly implanted with an embryo from a Detroit couple named Paul and Shannon Morrell. Savage and her husband learned of the mistake 10 days after she became pregnant, but say they never considered terminating the pregnancy or fighting for custody. The baby boy was born this past Thursday and will be raised by the Morrells, who thanked Savage in a statement, calling her their child’s “guardian angel.”
