Taken at birth : stolen babies, hidden lies, and my journey to finding home / Jane Blasio.

Blasio, Jane, 1965- (author.).


"From the 1940s through the 1960s, young pregnant women entered the front door of a clinic in a small North Georgia town. Sometimes their babies exited out the back, sold to northern couples who were desperate to hold a newborn in their arms. But these weren't adoptions--they were transactions. And one unethical doctor was exploiting other people's tragedies. Jane Blasio was one of those babies. At six, she learned she was adopted. At fourteen, she first saw her birth certificate, which led her to begin piecing together details of her past. Jane undertook a decades-long personal investigation to not only discover her own origins but identify and reunite other victims of the Hicks Clinic human trafficking scheme. Along the way she became an expert in illicit adoptions, serving as an investigator and telling her story on every major news network. Taken at Birth is the remarkable account of her tireless quest for truth, justice, and resolution." -- Back cover.
"The shocking true story of a baby illegally sold at birth and her relentless journey to find her birth family, help fellow victims, and expose the hidden secrets of the Hicks Clinic"-- Provided by publisher.
