When Love Overcomes Sin: The Story of a Thai Surrogate Mom and a Disabled Baby

Australian parents who used a Thai surrogate mother to carry their twins found out that one twin had Down Syndrome. Their decision: take the “typical” child home, and leave the child with Down Syndrome in Thailand with no provisions for his care. This child, by the way, had a heart defect and would not survive without surgery. The surrogate mother, however, decided to keep the child, despite the fact that she lacks the money to do so. This is a story about the really, really bad decisions people sometimes make, and the really, really good things of which we’re capable.
