I'm not really sure here, it depends on the country and its laws. But as far as I know the surrogate isn't mentioned on the birth certificate. There's no need to give the child up for adoption, because there usually is already some kind of contract- I think- and other paperwork done before the whole "procedure" begins.
I wouldn't take money from my sister and I don't think Eames did (I write about the case as if it was real ;D ). But I'm sure it wasn't easy, even for a person like her. Even if you know the whole time that it's not *yours*- technically. But there are so many moments during a pregnancy that are fascinating. And let's not forget the hormones. Three days after giving birth I cried without really knowing why ;D
Oh, I forgot something:
You know, I've always thought that Eames, being a Detective,was a poor choice as a surrogate. I mean, she runs after perps, gets shot at, might possible get slugged by a fleeing felon. I would have worried if I were her sister. I suppose the desire to have a chid superseded the risk for everyone involved.
Well, the sister comes from a family of cops, too, so maybe she is much more relaxed about it than we would probably be. A Detective wouldn't be my first choice, either. But who knows, if my sister had such a job and I was in such a situation, maybe I would prefer someone I can really trust in such a delicate matter over a stranger, too.
