          "Am I the Only One?"

          June 15, 2010

          Should a mental illness prevent a woman from being a mother? Shelly made headlines when she agreed to be a surrogate for Amy and Scott, but later reclaimed the babies when she says she discovered that Amy had a mental disorder. It’s an emotional Dr. Phil you don’t want to miss!

          “I am Not a Monster That Steals Babies”

          As a gestational surrogate, Shelly delivered twins for Amy and Scott Kehoe. But weeks after the babies were born, Shelly and her husband, Paul, asked that they be returned. Shelly says Amy withheld critical information about her past, including a criminal record and having been diagnosed with a mental disorder.
