Mother Has Baby For Her Son
Mr. Casson has been turned away from surrogacy clinics across the country, and was unsuccessful with the first relative he asked. After facing these disappointing set backs and desperate to have a child, he felt his mother was the only option left.
In a report released by, The Telegraph , Mrs. Casson says she felt compelled to help her son. A lot of people she first shared it with did not understand, but her first instinct was, ‘I could do this.’
He is not her biological son, but is tied to her as her grandson. Mrs. further explained that she loved being a parent, and wants her son to have that same experience. Mr. Casson is enjoying his role as a parent, and says others can have their own opinions on the matter. For him, he has his son and is very happy and does not believe anyone should be denied the right to be a parent.
The High Court which ruled on the adoption last week stated the woman who carried the child is the legal mother. The husband of the surrogate mother is legally the father as he consented to the pregnancy. Under the law governing surrogacy, it would a crime to hand the baby over to a single father alone. The ruling in this case does not break the law as baby and the father are legally related as brothers. Social workers are backing this ruling and adoption.
