A baby boy at the focus of an unusual custody case was released from the hospital Saturday and taken to the home of his genetic parents until a court decides whether his birth mother should also have custody.

Wrapped in a white blanket and wearing a blue-and-red knit cap, the infant, born Wednesday, left Saint Joseph Hospital in Orange about 10:20 a.m. with his court-appointed guardian, William Steiner.Steiner said he was taking the infant to the home of the child's biological parents, Mark and Crispina Calvert, who are engaged in a custody battle with Anna Johnson, the woman they hired for $10,000 to give birth to a fertilized egg implanted in her womb nearly nine months ago.

The Calverts were given interim custody of the baby Friday after Johnson, 29, agreed to give up the boy instead of having him placed in a foster home.
