The case of Gammy, a baby with Down's syndrome and heart infection who was born to a Thai surrogate mother,Pattharamon Chanbua, and allegedly left behind by the intended Australian parents,Davis and Wendy Farnell, has caused international controversy.|
However,the Australian couple said they wanted to take their left child home.David and Wendy Farnell, speaking publicly for the first time, insisted the Thai mother would not hand over Gammy, the seven-month-old baby boy. They say they will fight to get Gammy back.
Before that,the surrogate mother says the couple deliberately left Gammy behind because of his disabilities.The couple, which denies this, had earlier told Australian media they did not know of his existence, and that Pattharamon Chanbua, 21, was lying.
In an exclusive interview on Sunday, David Farnell said: "We did not abandon our son.
"The surrogate mother - it is her choice if she wants to give you the baby or not give you the baby. Although you have a surrogacy agreement, it really doesn't mean anything. It is her decision, and our surrogate mother said that she wanted to keep the baby boy."
