The thousand dollar baby

This must be one of those stories where the authorities know a whole lot more than is revealed in the news stories, like maybe the whole family is dangerous and the best thing is to get the kid out of there. Otherwise, it's hard to see the heinousness of a woman selling her baby for a pittance to the grandparents who have done most of the raising of the baby anyway. How is this more horrible than a surrogate who has a baby to give to complete strangers, or people who pay tens of thousands of dollars to go outside of normal channels to get a baby? What am I missing?
