"I needed to know what it felt like for someone to love me." - Ann Pettway
In 1987, a woman, dressed as a nurse, snatched a baby girl was from Harlem Hospital in Manhattan. The baby, Carlina White, was daughter of teen parents Joy White and Carl Tyson. It took them 23 years to be reunited with their daughter. And the kicker is that it was 23 year old Carlina, who solved her own kidnapping. This is that story. And for a Lifetime Movie, it's pretty solid. Props to all of the actors for really giving it their all.
