Transcript for Countdown to ‘Stolen By My Mother: The Kamiyah Mobley Story’
I'm really excited to share with all of you, my first film for lifetime "Stolen by my mother" airs tomorrow night. Immediately following the movie is a documentary where you're going to meet the real-life people who inspired the film including kamiyah herself who was kidnapped at birth. She was just 8 hours ole. When I sat down with her she described the moment she first found out that Gloria Williams had abducted her and later going online to learn more about her biological mother. I left when she told me that. I didn't leave in a rage. Let me process this a little bit. How were you able to keep it a secret once Gloria told you the truth that she was not your biological mother. You know, you just like -- having another out of 3w0ed maybe you didn't tell me that. I don't know what happened there. People make it seem like I was protecting her but you got to understand you're telling a 16-year-old this so what do I do? You did try and find out about yourself. Didn't you go online. I sure did. You were able to find shanara's phone number. I can't remember the exact thing I said but she was like, hello. She answered like she does now and she asked, who is this and I hung up. After DNA tests proved conclusively she was kamiyah Mobley stolen from a Jacksonville hospital years earlier, police arrested Gloria Williams and charged her with the kidnapping. Authorities gave kamiyah a chance to say good-bye to the only woman she ever knew as mom. I love you. They would meet again in a courtroom 1 1/2 years later. When you walk in that courtroom, you have one family sitting on one side of the courtroom. You have the other family sitting on the other side of the courtroom. How did you know where to sit and what was -- My lawyer. Let's just get in the back. Both Sha flora and Craig have the opportunity as victims to get on the stand and speak directly to Gloria. I never knew this day would come that I would finally face the kidnapper. The parents' suffering on so many levels. The mother and father. The mother and father suffering. She's open for that. I will say death. She stunned everyone when she said the death penalty. Of course, that wasn't on the table. Shanara did that so she asked well just give her the maximum sentence possible. I'm till hurting. Reaching out to my child, that is my child. I am your mother, kamiyah. I am your mother. And she never forgot that fact. For 18 years that they were apart every single year the biological mother celebrated her daughter's birthday every single year. So much emotion and the film and the documentary which are co-produced by my production company airs tomorrow night on lifetime beginning at 8:00 P.M. The film first and real-life documentary where you get to see how kamiyah is doing today.
