Thelma Tipton, who is now 75 years old, gave birth to her first baby 50 years ago. At the time, her doctor Thomas Jugarthy Hicks told her that the baby had died and even went as far to issue a death certificate. But the truth is that he sold her baby for money along with an estimated 200 others.
In the video below, you get to meet 51-year-old Kriste Hughes, who is one of the “Hicks Babies”. With the help of Ancestry.com, she was able to find her first cousin. On the phone, her cousin told her that two of her aunts gave birth at the Hicks clinic. The one who is still alive, Thelma Tipton, could possibly be her biological mother.
They quickly agreed to do a DNA test and believe it or not, it was a match! Kriste then traveled all the way to Georgia to meet them.
