The saga continues in the case of kidnapped Carlina, who has agreed to go against her birth mother and testify on behalf of the woman who took her from a Harlem hospital in 1987. Unbelievable!
As if Joy White hasn’t been through enough pain within the last 23 years, now her biological daughter, Carlina White, who was finally reunited with her real parents this January after being kidnapped as an infant back in 1987, has decided to stand by the woman who snatched her from the hospital. What a shame.
A defense lawyer in the case today, May 3, announced that Carlina, 23, has decided to testify on behalf of her “fake mother,” Ann Pettway, who has pleaded not guilty to the kidnapping charge. Carlina, who now has a 6-year-old daughter of her own, still feels a part of the Pettway family and will stand behind Ann if she is convicted.
Ann claims that she did not steal Carlina, but that a drug-addicted woman handed her the 19-day-old baby at the hospital. Ann then raised Carlina, who grew up as Nejdra Nance in Bridgeport, CT.
Carlina discovered Ann was not her biological mother a few years back after asking her “mother” for her birth certificate when she fell pregnant. Carlina tracked down her real parents, Joy White and Carl Tyson through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
So, should Carlina turn her back on her biological family and support the woman accused of kidnapping her? What do YOU think?
