FORT WORTH, TX (WFAA/CNN) - For a couple who tried time and time again to have a baby, it's a long-awaited miracle.
At first they were met with heartbreak - six miscarriages. But now, they've just begun a wonderful chapter in their lives.
The Montroses acquired a lot of baby things long before they had a child.
"A lot of it is things we've collected throughout the pregnancies and now get to use," Dan Montrose said.
Keva Montrose had no trouble getting pregnant. She just couldn't stay pregnant.
"All we had was heartache from pregnancy after pregnancy," Dan Montrose said. "Now, we actually have a child."
Two years ago, they entered a video contest and won free in-vitro fertilization, a $12,000 process, from Sher Fertility Clinics.
The Montroses hired a young woman from Amarillo to be the surrogate and had a baby boy, Remington Scott Montrose, two weeks ago.
"I think I have more anxiety that he's here - 'OK, he's been too quiet for too many hours. Is there something wrong?' - than through the delivery process," Keva Montrose said.
Sher Fertility Clinic at Medical City Dallas retrieved her eggs, created seven embryos, then froze them.
They used a couple to have Remington but have some left over, meaning the Montroses can expand their family in the future.
"The work is done," Dr. Walid Saleh of Sher Fertility Institute said. "We can just thaw the embryos, transfer them and expect a decent outcome."
Dan and Keva Montrose haven't yet decided what to do.
Even with free in-vitro, having Remington this way cost the couple $40,000. They cut back on TV, never purchased smartphones and saved for the surrogate to invest in a family.
