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.

Richard Cushworth, originally from Bradford, West Yorkshire, and his Salvadoran wife Mercedes Casanellas tracked down their son Moses after realizing the baby they had been taking care of was not theirs.

In this interview by BBC correspondent Matthew Price,the mother is explaining the whole situation about the baby switch in the hospital. Her feelings,thoughts that the baby she was nursing, taking care of,loving him wasn’t hers… 

She said: If this is my child,the DNA will prove that this is my child and this thought will leave forever!” And the DNA test result was 0.00% that she is the biological mother.

The other thought she had was: ” WHERE IS MY BABY? What is going to happen with this baby and where is my baby? ”
