19-year-old Girl Kidnapped At Birth still Calls Her Abductor Mum


The teenage girl who was abducted at birth from a Florida hospital has revealed she still 'loves' the woman who raised her and continues to call her 'mom'. 
Kamiyah Mobley (19) made these revelations and more in her first interview since 52-year-old Gloria Williams was sentenced to 18 years in prison on Friday.
Since the woman who raised her was arrested last year, Mobley says they continue to speak several times a week on the phone from jail.
'We actually talked today. I still do call her "Mom,"' Mobley told ABC News.
And the relationship is still very much mother-daughter.
'Oh yeah, she calls and still gets on me. Yes, she does,' Mobley added.
Mobley was just a few hours old in July 1998 when Williams snatched her from a Jacksonville, Florida maternity ward.
Williams had suffered a miscarriage a month before and drove Mobley to South Carolina where she passed her off as her own.
Mobley's biological mother, Shanara Mobley, was just 16 years old when her daughter was ripped from her. She and the teen's father, Craig Aiken, never stopped looking for their daughter, though they eventually split up.
Mobley says she's visited her biological parents and siblings several times since Williams was arrested last year.
'I've gone to Florida several times ... and I call them. We talk almost every day" she said.
She added: 'I like it. It's new people who act just like you, they look just like you. It's almost just like extended family. You know, that's really what it feels like.'
However, Mobley she continues to live in Williams' home in South Carolina and says she looks forward to the day she is released from prison. Mobley says she thinks Williams' sentence of 18 years in prison was 'fair,' despite her biological mom telling DailyMail.com that she hoped the woman would be executed.
Mobley says she's glad that the trial is over.
'I actually got closure now,' she said. 'Everything is done. No more court. No more back and forth.'
She says she looks forward to the day that Williams is released from prison. She says she realizes people don't understand how she can maintain a relationship with the woman who raised her, but she doesn't care. She says Williams was a good mother to her.
'She was very open to all my friends I brought through that door,' Mobley said. 'She was one of those mothers, she was like open to sleepovers, open to company. Always smiling, always upbeat, up-tempo about everything. Very hard working, very hard working. She was actually getting her master's [degree] before she was incarcerated.'
Mobley, who graduated from high school in 2016, says she's been busy starting her new life - doing paperwork, getting her social security number, birth certificate and studying for her driver's license. She says she hopes to go to college someday.
'Who wants to sit around and be sad all day?' she said. 'I mean, it doesn't help anything. It's not going to change anything. I learned that a long time ago.'
