  • "I think they should be happy with the three they have, greed often leads to heart break. "

    Excuse me? since when is wanting another child greed? So women who can concieve on their own have a right to as many kids as they want but not her because she has fertility issues?

  • I saw this.. that is nuts. I would be terribly upset. My hopes crushed. But I would do the same as they are. I believe if I am correct they plan on giving it to the actual parents. I would do the same because I would feel like I had stolen a child. But I would also make sure they implanted me again until I got pregnant with MY child and I would refuse to pay. It was a huge mistake on their part why should these people have to pay for it.

  • She was told this should be her last pregnancy and she has three other kids to think about. The fertility clinic that made the mistake should pay for a surrogate for them if they still want a fourth child after this.

  • I'm pretty sure they only have 2 other kids but why is it greedy to want another biological child? They did nothing wrong.

  • While I would not call it greed , its true sometimes if you are not content with what you have and desire more these things happen..although they just wanted another child...a good thing in my opinion. But hopefuly the doc will have to pay for a surragate..only fair if she cant get pregnant again.
