The Nation

A surrogate mother fighting to keep the twins she bore under contract was allowed to retain temporary custody, but a judge ordered her to let the father and his wife see the newborns twice a week. Barry and Glinda Huber of Jonesboro, Ark., had asked Circuit Judge Timothy Green in St. Johns, Mich., to send the twins to a foster home until he rules on whether the contract they signed with Laurie Ellen Yates is valid. Yates and her husband, Richard, of Ithaca, Mich., filed suit Aug. 19, seeking to have the contract thrown out and be awarded custody of the boy and girl. The twins were born Sept. 4 after Yates was artificially inseminated with Huber's sperm.
