Answer: This is a serious and complicated issue. I have consulted with Rabbonim older and more experienced than myself, and it seems there is no simple formula whether the Jewish status of the child follows the birth mother or the genetic mother. Each individual must present his specific case to one of the Gedolei HaPoskim for a ruling specific to his circumstances.
