  • A couple who were given the wrong baby by a hospital in El Salvador a year ago, have finally been allowed to travel home with the correct child. Rich Cushworth - who is British - and his wife, Mercedes - were only given a birth certificate for their son Moses a few days ago. They landed back home in Dallas, Texas this week where they have been speaking exclusively to our correspondent Matthew Price.Please subscribe HERE State's 'Most Wanted' In Pictures Hitters Good News

    @D M Wow!! I am surprised at your case! I have never seen a brown child get lighter or a black haired child turn blond!!! It is common for a child's skin to darken and their hair get darker as they get older. First time I've heard of the reverse!!!

    She is such a sweet and loving mother. She still unconditionally loved the other baby like her own even after she found out the baby wasn't her's. 😢

    ma wee chickadee I don’t think she literally wanted to keep both, but she had grown attached to a baby that wasn’t hers knowing her actual child was somewhere out there. She knew another mother was suffering but she was put into this awful situation by someone else’s fuck up, she wanted the best for this child who she had poured her love and affection into. I get what you mean, but I also think due to her situation it’s understandable she felt a connection to both children. (I don’t know if I sound rud...

    I was switched at birth.  Luckily I was switched with a boy and both of our mom's each knew that one had a girl and one had a boy.  We both had the same last name with the same birthdate.  They just said oops and immediately switched us back.  I was briefly in the room with Michael Roberts' parents!

    Typical that the mother would be ignored as being "hysterical," "under the influence of medication," etc. This is the type of misogyny that women experience constantly in the USA.

    Not everything is because of misoginy, not everything is misoginy. And saying women who disagree with you have "internalized misoginy", like some women here have said, is the maximum level of bullshit and nothing but a way to silence different opinions.

    I don't understand why they remove the babies from the mother and put them in a separate room to begin with. Giving the mother a break is just stupidest reason ever, she just carried that baby around for 9 months and gave birth, the baby shouldn't leave the mother's side to the mother leaves the hospital and decides for herself! Then this monstrosity that has happened way to many times, would ever happen.
