Carlina White was reunited with her birth parents on Friday 23 years after being abducted as an infant from a Harlem hospital by a woman disguised as a nurse, according to this New York Times article and this account on CNN.

White had long suspected the woman who claimed to be her mother was not. So she went online to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and saw this poster.

White suspected the baby in the picture was her. After contacting authorities she took a DNA test that proved she was the missing daughter of Joy White and Carl Tyson.

Q: Social workers, should the woman who abducted and raised Carlina White be prosecuted? What services will White need to ease her reunification with her birth parents, siblings and other relatives?
