Grammy (NOT Gammy reports WHO) became the centre of attention when his parents David and Wendy Farnell rejected him and left him in Thailand with his surrogate mum and only claimed his “healthy” twin sister.

Grammy’s sister Pipah now lives in Bunbury, WA with the Farnells.


His mother Pattaramon Chunbua told WHO “I never see mentally or physically that he is handicapped. It’s never been a hardship for me with Grammy. Since I have Grammy, I am blessed with luck.”

“I am very worried for my daughter,” who they have a picture of  on the wall of her living room. “I always tell [Grammy] he has a sister. I want the brother and sister to meet.”

“Grammy makes the home lively. He makes everyone laugh and smile.”

WHO reports Grammy was named after the Gramophone company for all the noise he made.

  • Ph phew, glad the name is Grammy, sounds much better than gammy. What a darling bubba. May your life be filled with love and happiness x


  • Great to see he is doing well and that he is loved. I hope he gets to meet his sister one day.


  • it’s not the girls fault that grammy was born as he was,and i think it was a selfish act on his real parents not to have stepped to the challenge,and in fact,this girl who bore gammy has enough to give this child a better financial future and a truely loving home,not a trophy kid like”pippah?””is,what gets me,they knew the risks,they expected some one else to have an abortin against her religion and they were the ones who chose her,i guess sometimes you just don’t really know someone as well as you thought,because,i think even their own friends would have a highly differant perspective on this,thats if they were allowed to speak,it’s n ot sad,not for grammy!!!he got the better end of the deal!!


  • Great to see he’s doing well, it’s sad he was left like that, at least he’s being treated well :)
