Israeli Gay Couple Discover Surrogate Baby Mistake

Wrong Baby From Surrogate Mother in Nepal

Screen Shot 2016-01-08 at 1.29.30 PMSeveral weeks after completing the surrogate birth process in Nepal, a gay Israeli couple learned that the baby girl they’d been told was theirs and had been caring for is not their daughter.

The error was revealed by the routine tissue testing all Israeli couples who use a surrogate abroad must undergo to prove the baby’s biological link to one of the parents. The tests are conducted by Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer and take several weeks to complete. Only when the results are received can the parents finalize the baby’s paperwork and bring him or her back to Israel.

In this case, the testing revealed that there was no biological link between the parents and the baby. The men had to hand her over to her actual parents, who had also been waiting for a surrogate birth in the same Nepalese hospital. Now they are waiting for another surrogate mother to give birth to determine if the baby she’s carrying belongs to them.
