Alexis Manigo, 18, was kidnapped from a Florida hospital shortly after her birth. Since then, she has been raised by her abductor Gloria Williams.
Following DNA testing that confirmed Manigo was not Williams’ biological daughter, the 51-year-old was arrested and charged with Manigo’s kidnapping.
Manigo is understandably struggling to process the news that both her biological parents and her name are not what she thought they were.
And now, in an interview with ABC News’ Good Morning America, Manigo has spoken for the first time about coming to terms with the truth about her upbringing.
Manigo has learnt that her birth name is Kamiyah Mobley and she met her birth parents last week.
“Your whole life you’ve been known as Alexis…and now it’s like people are referring to you as someone else,” Manigo said.
Manigo insists that Williams was a wonderful mother, despite her wrongdoing.
