Surrogate Mom Melissa Cook Still Hasn’t Been Allowed to See Triplets She Gave Birth to in February

March 17, 2016

(People) – On Feb. 22, Cook gave birth to three baby boys and watched helplessly as hospital nurses whisked the infants away from her. She now believes the father, a deaf, single 50-year-old postal worker who lives with his elderly parents in Georgia, is unable to care for the infants. She has filed lawsuits asking to have the state’s surrogacy law declared unconstitutional and grant her custody of one of the children – although she’s prepared to care for all of them.
