A surrogate mother in Thailand who was left with a Down's Syndrome baby allegedly abandoned by his Australian biological parents has said she would be happy to have the baby's healthy twin returned. Pattaramon Chanbua also spoke of her shock over reports alleging the father was a convicted sex offender.
The 21-year-old said the father rejected Gammy, while taking his healthy twin sister home to the state of Western Australia.
Australia's Nine Network television alleged that the father was a convicted paedophile.
Pattaramon Chanbua, Surrogate mother: "If she (baby girl) is happy, then I, as a mother, am also happy. I don't want to bring her back to suffer or anything. A mother would never want her child in trouble. But if she really cannot go on living there, then I'm very happy to have her back in my arms."
On condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media, a police officer told The Associated Press, that the father was a convicted sex offender.?
While the mother had previously said she was happy to have the twin girl stay with the Australian parents, the reports about the father's past had raised doubts in her mind.
