THIS KIDNAPPING STORY IS STRANGER THAN FICTION

Imagine having your newborn baby stolen from the hospital and having her return as an adult 23 years later! The kidnapper in this shocking news event was just sentenced to a mere 12 years in prison and the story is being made into a Lifetime TV movie. Long story short: Ann Pettway disguised herself as a nurse and stole Carline White from the hospital, devastating her mother Joy White and father. The parents sued the hospital and got a settlement of $750,000 – fighting over the money contributed to their breaking up. Baby Carlina grew up haphazardly with her mentally deranged and drug addled abductor. When she realized she had no birth certificate, she became suspicious, researched online and learned that her real parents lived 45 minutes away. She was already damaged goods when she reunited with her mother Joy (played by Sherri Shepherd in the movie.) Imagine the psychological implications! Carlina was her mother’s flesh and blood but they had little in common- Carlina’s upbringing lacked education, family values, ethics. etc. And her lawyer pushed her to ask her mother about the settlement money! They are now estranged. Carlina’s mother said “My daughter found me, but I still haven’t found my daughter.” It’s a chilling story.

    Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. Glad she got to reunite with her birth parents, hopefully she will have a better life. I’m betting there’s plenty of these stories but some may not end up a happy ever after.

    @yoyo. Did you even read the story? This didn’t end up happy ever after.

    I imagine in the majority of cases the damage done is too much. Once the baby is gone it’s never the same. Tragic for everyone.

    Agree Sherri Shepherd won’t help.

    I feel sorry for the mother but you see that greed entered from both sides. The BLACKS are out to scarf up anything possible to avoid work and are being enabled by the man in the White House.

    @Colin,

    You misunderstood my comment, I wasn’t referring to this particular story having a good outcome, no one could under those circumstances. I’m talking in general, other people who have gone through similar situations which sadly, impact their lives in a negative way forever.

    Carlina White needs counseling and I hope she will accept it. The kidnapper is a criminal and a sicko. She should have respect and consideration for her parents. It appears that she has conformed to the ghetto life style. She does not know what love is.

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
