After over a month of waiting, couple Marvin and Aphril Sifiata finally got the baby that’s rightfully theirs!
It can be recalled that the couple had first complained that the baby they got from the hospital last January didn’t look like the ones they were able to take photos of at birth. There were so many discrepancies that made them believe the child wasn’t theirs, particularly because the child didn’t even have the correct tag on his leg.
At first, the other couple Kim Jasper and Margareth Mulleno didn’t agree about going public over the issue because they firmly believe that the baby they took home was theirs. Kim Jasper explained that he had asked a nurse to change the baby’s tag to “Mulleno” because it was misspelled. But he had no idea that this would trigger a big problem when the nurse made a mistake and tagged the wrong baby.
After the Sifiatas’ test results came back negative, the Mullenos finally agreed to undergo a DNA test. The results came back negative.
But their waiting had to be extended. They could not just swap babies right there and then. Maternity still has to be established through a cross DNA test to make sure that the two women are truly the mothers of these babies. After all, if the baby swap happened, it might be possible that another baby might be involved.
It was only recently that the two families received the results of the cross-testing. Thankfully, they didn’t have to wait for another series of tests to get back their babies because both the results turned out to be close to 100% positive. This means that the women are the mothers of the swapped babies.
They were finally able to get their real babies back, though both turned emotional as they bid goodbye to the babies they had cared for the past month. But they are also thankful that the ordeal is over.
“I’m happy. My intuition was right,” Aphril said.
“I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that happened. I feel overwhelmed. I’m very happy that I’ll finally be with my baby, and they can be with theirs. I’m very grateful. If it weren’t for KMJS, we wouldn’t know the truth,” said Margareth.
