Rich Cushworth and his wife Mercy was dreaming of a life that is peaceful after having their baby boy. But Mercy realized that the baby she brought home was not the baby she gave birth to the previous day.
Rich Cushworth and his now wife met in Dallas, Texas. They were attending Christ for the Nations missionary school. Mercy and Rich got married in the US. Mercy who was on a temporary visa had to go back to ElSavador to give birth to their son as she her temporary visa was expiring.
The day after she had her baby Moses she realized or her mom instinct told her that the baby they brought to her was not the same baby that she gave birth to yesterday. So after four months, she decided to take a DNA test and her suspicion was confirmed.
Her baby Jacob that she brought to the US with her was not her baby. Well we would think that it would be a simple process of finding the biological parents of Jacob give them Jacob and get back her baby boy Moses. But No they returned Jacob to his parents. Mercy says that it was sad that they gave her only one hour to say goodbye to Jacob, who they raised and oved like their own.
El Salvador government refused to give their baby Moses birth certificate and visa to go home to the United States. After a years battle, they were able to bring their baby home. Hopefully baby boy’s first birthday was here in the US.
It is so good to hear a good ending to this story. I cannot imagine what Mercy and Rich had to go through to bring their baby home.
