let's say your week old infant was stolen from the crib one night. let's say you could not find her until five years later, despite massive manhunts. Do you walk away and let her "family" keep her? or do you go get your kid?
Is ^ that scenario any more of a kidnapping than Teleah's? Should a mother have no recourse if the baby's father had walked out of the house one night with the infant and placed her for adoption without the birth mother's knowledge? Are mom's all that matter?
