Mom-In-Law Gives Daughter Ultimatum After Finding Out She Doesn’t Want Kids


The New Daughter In Law

Anita Conrad from Orlando, Florida, doted on her only son Bruce. Since her husband had passed away five years ago, she and Bruce had become particularly close.

She even cried when Bruce finally announced that he was getting married. Anita didn’t want her son to move away and leave her all alone. But she didn’t feel that way anymore once she met Bruce’s wife and her new daughter-in-law, Lucy.

A Kind Heart


Anita appreciated that Lucy always made Bruce visit her and made sure that he didn’t forget about his beloved mother.

She was thankful for Lucy’s kind heart. And even though they were newlyweds, Lucy always invited Anita along wherever they would go. She was a daughter-in-law in a million. But that would all soon change.

Three-Year Anniversary Lunch


On one occasion, Anita was invited to Lucy and Bruce’s three-year wedding anniversary lunch. They picked a beautiful restaurant where they selected a table in the garden area.

Anita was grateful that they chose to invite her to their anniversary lunch. But she had a hunch that this was no ordinary anniversary. She was hoping for a certain announcement.

Is This What She Was Waiting For?


She knew it was only a matter of time before they made the announcement to her. She had waited with bated breath for three whole years. Surely now was the time for it, she thought.

Besides, she had noticed Lucy had picked up some weight over the last few weeks. It could be the sign and moment she had been hoping for such a long time.

She Waited And Waited


At lunch, Anita waited and waited, but nothing in their conversation came up. Was she mistaken? Or maybe they wanted to wait a bit longer before they announced it.

She knew couples waited at least three months to do this. But as she looked at her son and daughter-in-law, she couldn’t really be sure what was going on.

A Close And Honest Relationship


Just as their desserts were served, Anita decided to pluck up the courage and ask herself. What harm would it do if she asked them? They had a close and honest relationship, or so she thought.

She took a deep breath and looked at both of them. “So, dears, I was actually hoping that you were going to announce something special to me today?”

Silence and Tension


Anita’s words hung in the air, causing a momentary silence to envelop the table. Bruce and Lucy exchanged a quick glance, their eyes filled with unspoken tension.

Anita could feel her heart pounding in her chest as she awaited their response. But she could see the look on their faces. She didn’t know what to make of it.



Bruce cleared his throat and gave his wife a reassuring smile. “Mom, we’ve actually been meaning to talk to you about this,” he began, his voice filled with a mix of apprehension and determination.

“Lucy and I have decided that we’re not planning on having children.” Anita’s heart sank at the words, her hopes shattered in an instant.



She struggled to hide her disappointment and shock, but her eyes betrayed her true emotions. She searched for any sign of hesitation or uncertainty in their faces, hoping that they would change their minds.

Anita’s mind raced with a whirlwind of thoughts and emotions. How could her son and daughter-in-law deny her the joy of being a grandmother?

A Mother’s Determination


She had envisioned herself doting on little grandchildren, sharing precious moments, and creating lasting memories. The news felt like a cruel blow to her dreams.

But Anita was not one to back down easily. She was a determined woman, and the fire of determination burned fiercely within her. She decided right then and there that she wouldn’t let this setback derail her plans.

The Seeds of a Plan


In the following weeks, Anita became even more observant of Lucy’s behavior. She couldn’t let go of the nagging feeling that there was more to the story.

She noticed Lucy’s exhaustion, her occasional bouts of nausea, and the subtle changes in her appearance. An idea began to take root in Anita’s mind, fueled by her desperation to have grandchildren.

Uncovering the Truth


She started to suspect that Lucy might be pregnant but kept it a secret. Anita’s resolve solidified, and she hatched a plan to confirm her suspicions.

Anita decided to take matters into her own hands. She discreetly collected a used pregnancy test from the bathroom trash bin during one of her visits to Bruce and Lucy’s home. She would find out the truth, one way or another.



With a mix of anticipation and guilt, Anita examined the pregnancy test in the privacy of her own home. The test confirmed that Lucy was not pregnant after all.

Anger flooded through Anita’s veins, temporarily overriding any sense of wrongdoing. She had a plan. Anita knew that she had to act carefully to ensure her plan would work flawlessly.

She Really Wanted To Be A Grandmother


She wanted to present her son and daughter-in-law with a surprise announcement that would force them to accept their fate as parents. She really wanted to be a grandmother, and this was the only way.

Anita spent days meticulously crafting a plan, consulting experts, and delving into the world of assisted reproductive technology.

Secret Appointments


She learned about in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and the process of creating embryos outside the womb. Anita secretly scheduled an appointment at a reputable fertility clinic, assuming Lucy’s identity.

She was determined to make her daughter-in-law’s dreams of a childless future crumble. There was no way that they were going to deny her the right to be a grandmother.

The Unexpected Twist


As Anita underwent the many consultations, she couldn’t help but feel a mix of exhilaration and guilt. She knew she was crossing boundaries and manipulating the situation, but her desire for grandchildren overshadowed any ethical concerns.

However, fate had a way of throwing unexpected twists into Anita’s carefully crafted plan. Things were not going according to plan.

A Mysterious Phone Call


A few days after Anita’s IVF consultations, she received a mysterious phone call. The voice on the other end of the line was disguised, making it impossible for her to recognize the caller.

“I know what you’re up to, Anita,” the voice whispered, sending a shiver down her spine. “If you don’t want your secret exposed, you better stop meddling in other people’s lives.”

Paranoia and Doubt


Anita’s heart raced as she tried to comprehend the meaning behind the cryptic message. Who could possibly know about her plan? Was someone watching her every move?

Anita’s mind became a whirlwind of paranoia and doubt. She couldn’t shake off the feeling of being constantly watched. Every sound seemed amplified, and every stranger on the street appeared suspicious.



She questioned her decision to go to such lengths to fulfill her own desires. Guilt gnawed at her conscience, but she couldn’t turn back now. She had already taken the first steps, and there was no going back. (

Why had she done this? What was she thinking? But it was too late for her now. Someone already knew.

The Stolen Embryos


Anita returned to the fertility clinic for the embryo transfer procedure, hoping that everything would proceed as planned. However, when she arrived, she was greeted with shocking news.

“We’re sorry, Mrs. Conrad,” the nurse said with a sympathetic tone. “We had a break-in at the clinic last night, and it seems that your embryos have gone missing.”

A Desperate Search


Anita’s heart stopped, and panic coursed through her veins. How could this have happened? Who would have a motive to steal her embryos?

Anita frantically demanded answers from the clinic, but they were unable to provide any immediate explanation. She was devastated and felt her carefully constructed plan crumbling before her eyes.

Uncovering The Truth


Determined to uncover the truth, Anita embarked on a desperate search for answers. She delved into the dark corners of the fertility clinic’s history and questioned the staff relentlessly.

She was not going to let anyone get away with sabotaging her chance of becoming a grandmother. Who could have done this, and why? Why her embryos specifically?

Security Cameras


She was even able to get to the security and check their cameras. There she discovered something. It was as clear as day. Someone had come in unnoticed and walked straight into the labs.

The person searched for her name and stole what was hers. The fury in Anita’s eyes was blazing. The person was not going to get away with this.



But through the anger, she felt a pang of sadness. She had gone through so much effort to do this, to be a grandmother. And now it was all for nothing.

She sat in her living room thinking about what could’ve been. Then, her phone suddenly rang. She was very surprised to hear who was on the other end of the phone.

Unexpected News


It was her doctor from the fertility clinic, and she had some unexpected news for her. Anita listened to the unbelievable news the doctor was giving her.

This was just what she needed. Things were looking up again. The news was good, and her plan could finally be carried out. There was no turning back now.



The doctor had revealed to her that they had found some of her embryos since someone in the lab had stored some of them in a different location.

Anita’s plan was back on track, and there was no stopping her now. She immediately made an appointment with the doctor to start the process. She didn’t want to wait any longer.

Was She Doing The Right Thing?


Anita sat nervously, waiting for her turn to see the doctor and finally begin the procedure. But her mind was racing with all kinds of thoughts.

Who was stalking her, and was it the same person who had stolen her embryos? There were a lot of bad omens leading up to the IVF procedure, and she wondered if she was still doing the right thing.

Her Only Chance


But as soon as her name was called, all Anita could think of was her chance of finally becoming a grandmother. This was her one and only chance.

She blocked all the worry and negative thoughts from her mind as she put on the hospital gown and lay on the cold bed. This was it.

A Fairy Tale Ending?


She knew everything would turn out for the best in the end. Bruce and Lucy would be thanking her, and they would all live happily ever after. Just like in the fairy tale books.

But something would happen that Anita had not prepared for at all. Things would not turn out how she had hoped and planned.



During the IVF process, all the embryos that were created took hold successfully, resulting in not just one but three potential grandchildren for Anita. Her scheme had backfired spectacularly.

How was she ever going to tell her son and daughter-in-law about what she had done? And how was she going to take care of triplets all on her own? Anita was in a world of trouble.
