SYDNEY - The Thai surrogate mother of a baby caught in an abandonment scandal says she will not let the boy return to his Australian biological parents even though they now say they want to bring him home.

"I will take care of my baby until I die ... no one will take my baby away from me," the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday quoted Pattharamon Janbua, 21, as saying. "You are dreaming. You are already guilty of abandoning Gammy and now you think you can get away with this."

"I want them to come to Thailand. I will take Gammy to see them. But they will never get my boy," she added.

Pattharamon made the comments after the couple, David and Wendy Farnell, broke their silence on Channel Nine's 60 minutes on Sunday night.
