Sylvania woman in wrong-embryo case hopes to see child soon

Carolyn and Sean Savage

NEW YORK (AP) - A Sylvania woman who was implanted with the wrong embryo says she hopes to visit soon with the baby boy she delivered and turned over to his biological parents.

Carolyn Savage told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday that she has been waiting for her family to finish a run of colds. She says she hopes in a couple weeks she'll be able to see the child for the first time since the hospital.

On Sept. 24, Savage gave birth to the 5 pound, 3 ounce biological son of Paul and Shannon Morell of the Detroit suburb of Troy, Mich. The families say a fertility clinic outside Ohio made a mix-up with frozen embryos in February.

Savage had a complicated delivery and bled heavily. She says she wants another child but will use a surrogate.
