Kaitlyn Munoz has so many memories of her mother stepping up to help her, right from her childhood days. Chalise Smith is mom to eight children, including Munoz, and she couldn't ignore the call for help from her daughter, even at the age of 50. This time, she needed a surrogate to carry her child and Smith stepped up. "My mom did a lot of things for me when I was a little girl that I couldn’t do for myself here I am 24 years later and again she’s doing something that I can’t do for myself, she is carrying my child," wrote 25-year-old Munoz on Instagram. Munoz was told she wouldn't be able to carry any more of her own children due to health issues. The 25-year-old was diagnosed with endometriosis, and Sjögren's syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that causes the body to attack the glands that make tears and saliva. It can also be damaging to the body, joints, thyroid, kidneys, liver, and more, reported PEOPLE.

Munoz had two frozen embryos and needed a surrogate, and that's when her mom offered to carry the baby. "I saw Kaitlyn go through the IVF process, and I know what it entails. There's all the shots and so many emotions that are involved with it, and I told her that I understood the risks, and that I had been praying about it for three weeks," said Smith. "Then she told me, 'I was just sitting here thinking about who could I have carry my embryos, and you called me up.'"
