From the 1940s through the 1960s, young pregnant women entered the front door of a clinic in a small North Georgia town. Sometimes their babies exited out the back, sold to northern couples who were desperate to hold a newborn in their arms. But these weren't adoptions--they were transactions. And one unethical doctor was exploiting other people's tragedies.
Jane Blasio was one of those babies. When she was six years old, she was told that she was adopted. She first saw her birth certificate at fourteen years old and began piecing together the details of her past. Jane undertook a decades-long personal investigation not only to discover her own origins but to identify and reunite other victims of the Hicks Clinic human trafficking scheme. Along the way she became an expert in illicit adoptions, serving as an investigator and telling her story on every major news network.
Taken at Birth is the remarkable account of her tireless quest for truth, justice, and resolution.
