Woman Acted as Surrogate Mother for Son’s IVF Baby, Court Hears

(The Guardian) – A woman acted as a surrogate mother for a baby whose biological father is her adult son, a family court judge has been told. The man, who is in his mid-20s and lives alone, had taken advice from specialist lawyers before embarking on the “process of becoming a father”, Mrs Justice Theis heard. He had looked after the little boy – now seven months old – since birth. Theis has ruled that he can adopt.
