ABILENE, Texas (BigCountryHomepage.com) – While all birth stories are so special and emotional in their own ways, one recent birth story has stood out among the rest. On New Year's Eve, a working Abilene mother of two gave birth to a baby boy for a French couple who would not have otherwise been able to grow their family. This isn’t even her first time doing this selfless act. With two of her own at home, Sajada Jones has had three babies for two different families, all out of the goodness of her heart. . . .
