I'm a gestational surrogate, and no. No more than getting baptised by a preacher who is paid by the church is "buying" salvation, or having CPR done by a paid EMT is "buying" your life. People are compensated for various acts in their life.

Would you say that the government "rents" foster parents?

No. If anything, adoption is buying a baby. But I don't think any legal ways of getting a child should be considered buying a baby.
