So what if she gets enough money to move from a shanty town and in to an actual apartment? Improving her quality of life will only improve the quality of life for all 3 of her children.

I think only Vic require police check. Not in QLD.
Wow I had no idea you didn't need a police check Australia wide. I'm in Vic I just assumed it would be the same. Thanks for the correct info ladies.
I whole heartedly agree with the previous posters who are standing up for Gammys Thai mum who is supposedly "milking" this situation. She has loved and cared for this baby for his whole life. She could have just left him at the hospital or dumped him at a shelter. She and her family live in poverty and obviously have few money earning opportunities- I doubt she did surrogacy for the fun of it! I think this is a women who will do what is necessary for the good of her family and I would do the same. I think the major worry with the money that is generously being offered to her and Gammy is not that she will selfishly spend it on living the high life while Gammy sufferers but that people with try to take advantage of her and she may be ill equipt to manage everything that is happening (financially and emotionally). I got the impression that most donations to Gammy were going through some kind of donation agency and that they assist with the management of the funds. X
Did the WA couple or their lawyer make a statement yet? I saw last night that they were going to....
And tbh, so what if there's a little money left over? If it means upgrading and improving their families way of life, I think it's money well earnt. This Thai mum stepped up when Gammy was abandoned- she could have abandoned him too, but she didn't. She was prepared to raise him before all these donations came in. This money for Gammy makes it easier for her. I take my hat off to her.
