    That is truly, truly atrocious. Where did you read that? Heartbreaking. :'(

    A factual update without one shred of proof... Hmm

    I was just reading this - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-08-0...-gammy/5644850

    "Impoverished mother Pattaramon Chanbua told the ABC she gave birth to twins after agreeing to be a surrogate for the West Australian couple with a promised payment of about $16,000.

    She claims the couple, who have not been identified, rejected Gammy and returned to Australia with his healthy sister.

    But the baby girl's Australian father says the clinic's doctor only told them about the girl.

    He has told the ABC they had a lot of trouble with the surrogacy agency and had been told it no longer existed.

    Ms Chanbua said her doctors, the surrogacy agency and the baby's parents knew he was disabled at four months, but did not inform her until the seventh month when the agency asked her - at the parents' request - to abort the disabled foetus.

    She told the ABC she refused the couple's request to terminate the pregnancy because in Thai culture it was considered sinful, but she could not afford Gammy's medical treatment."

    I wonder if it's the surrogates conceived naturally with her own egg. I disagree with a PP, I think the baby looks very Asian. However maybe the IPs were Asian.

    I just saw him on the news and I agree with you, he does look very Asian and also very gorgeous. I just want to smother him with kisses and cuddles ....

    Poor little bub. I hope whatever happened or does happen it's in his best interest. As for looking asian it may be the Down syndrome, which in general gives a wider nose and the asian looking eyes, plus his other issues.

    A lawyer for the West Australian biological parents of Gammy, the infant with Down syndrome born to a surrogate mother and abandoned in Thailand, is expected to make an announcement on behalf of the parents.

    Media is building at a house in South Bunbury in Western Australia's South West which is believed to be the home of the biological parents of baby Gammy.

    I'm a surrogate and this update came from Surrogacy Australia. Not sure what you mean by proof, thailand law regarding reproduction isnt really a secret and neither is their laws regarding parentage of babies born to surrogacy (the same law applies here btw). As for the later part of my post I'm gathering they have had contact with the surrogate or the intended parents.
