So, I was just reading a post by a mommy who was considering being a surrogate for her brother and SIL (a very kind and noble thing, in my book), and it got me wondering. I've seen a few articles this past year about women that became surrogates, only to decide to keep the baby, and in a lot of states, it's perfectly legal. One case was on a talk show a few months ago, and the woman decided to keep the twins she carried because shs discovered the donor's mental health history and didn't think they would be suitable parents. What do you think about this, and do you think it's okay for a surrogats to keep the baby with or without a legal agreement? I would love to hear what you mamas think!Answer Question
No, I do not think its right for a surrogate to keep the child they are carrying for another couple. In the case you are referencing the child did not have either parents DNA it was conceived from donated sperm and eggs. The surrogate had been a surrogate before and there had been no issues. The woman that hired her did not disclose that she had mental issues, I wouldn't have handed a child over to a mentally unstable women either. The judge sided with the surrogate.

Thata tricky..It depends who's eggs it was really..If its the other woman's eggs then damn right you better give over that baby..But if its your eggs then you find out the mother is not suitable that's a whole nother thing..
