When Jessica Allen offered her services as a surrogate, she may have thought that it was her chance to bring joy to another family. When she discovered that one of the babies who she’d borne was actually hers, however, she was horrified. And little did Allen know the struggle that would commence when she tried to get her child back.
Allen and her husband Wardell Jasper come from Perris in California. With their two beautiful children, Jairus and Jeramiah, the couple looked to have the perfect family. And Allen was keen that other people got to experience the same joy of parenthood too.
So, in the fall of 2015, the mom of two decided to offer her services as a surrogate – despite the fact that she’d only given birth to her second son, Jairus, six months prior. Still, Allen was keen to help another family achieve their dreams – and her husband was completely on board.
