While I would typically agree with you, I think this instance was different. They could have selected any number of babies that would have been just fine on screen, but they deliberately chose children who had the exact same dimples as JKJ. Both Philip and Chloe commented onscreen about the dimples before anyone knew the true paternity. I think in that particular case, the choice was on purpose.

And I do believe that Higley intended for Parker to remain Phloe's Hence the hiring of dimpled babies to match JKJ.
While I hate this storyline as much as you do, this isn't the most valid argument. Newborns are rarely ever hired to resemble their on-screen parents. Babies are usually called in for audition and the ones who appear to be the most disciplined (don't cry all the time, get along with actors, etc.) get the part. Hair color, eye color and all other features don't matter until the child is aged to a toddler. If you recall, the twins who first played Ciara looked nothing like KA or PR. They were blonde, but played a child of two dark-haired people. Then, when Ciara was aged, they chose a dark-haired child for a reason. So, the fact that babies had dimples just like JKJ was probably just a coincidence.
(FYI, I'm not a Daniel/Chloe fan, I speak from soap-viewing experience.)
