Carlina White – Finally Home after 23 Years

Carlina White began to question her identity when, as a young woman wanting to get her drivers license, her “mother” could not produce her birth certificate. After that, she began to notice that there really wasn’t any family resemblance between the two. Soon after that she began – all on her own – to search the missing children websites for the state of Connecticut where she had been raised.

Even though she eventually moved to Atlanta, GA on her own, on January 4th of this year she switched her search to the state of New York. We can only imagine the surreal realization when Carlina saw a picture of a baby snatched from a hospital 23 years ago that looked just like her own baby pictures. When she looked at the age progression photo at the website – it too looked just like her.

Now, two weeks later, a DNA test has confirmed that Carlina is indeed that very same “kidnapped” baby! Her mother Joy, her father and all of her true extended family who have never stopped praying for the return of their baby girl are completely overjoyed as is Carlina.

It is as though a ray of hope has broken through the clouds for families of missing children everywhere. I believe we all share in the jubilation of her Aunt who shouted; “Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Praise His holy name!”

As for Carlina White, she told the New York Post “I’m so happy. At the same time, it’s a funny feeling because everything’s brand-new. It’s like being born again,” she said.
