So I was watching Dateline earlier today and the story REALLY upset me.
A young woman applied to be a surrogate. She used HER egg and his sperm. There was a full contract and everything.
At the end of her pregnancy she changed her mind and wanted to KEEP the baby.
The father's name went on the birth certificate and her name as well
The "adoptive" family took her to court and after 4 months finally won custody. But the biomom got visitation.
After a year the "adoptive" family went back to court to file and have the bio mom's rights terminated because in that year since she was awarded visitation she had NEVER bothered to visit the child.
It was granted and the "adoptive" mother was finally allowed to adopt the little boy
I just find this insane...my heart broke for the bio dad and his wife...they paid to have a surrogate and got a freakin nightmare instead.
Do you think the judgements were right?
In my opinion the bio mom should never have had any kind of custody/visitation at all...
