The biological parents of a baby boy born to a woman who had the wrong embryo implanted by a fertility clinic say they will be "eternally grateful" to her.

Paul and Shannon Morell of suburban Detroit said in a statement Saturday said the baby was born Thursday at five pounds, three ounces and 18 inches long.

The Morells described birth mother Carolyn Savage of Toledo as their "guardian angel."

The Savages say a fertility clinic outside Ohio transferred the wrong frozen embryo in February. Ten days later, they got a call from a doctor at the clinic saying she was pregnant with someone else's child.

The Savages said on Wednesday they never considered terminating the pregnancy or trying to fight for custody.
