Damea Morris, a Black woman, believes that the baby she was told lost her life during birth was actually given away and is being raised by white parents who adopted her. Damea unexpectedly gave birth to a baby girl, RaeLa Adams, at home on the toilet about three years ago. Since they lived across from the street from a school, the baby’s father ran to get help and returned with a woman from the school who assisted Damea until paramedics arrived.
The woman told Damea her baby wasn’t breathing — although after they cut the umbilical cord the baby began to cry. When the paramedics arrived, they transported Damea and the baby to St. Joseph’s hospital where she was later told the baby lost her life. Being understandably emotional, Damea declined seeing her deceased baby and was given an urn with what was believed to be the baby’s remains.
Later, when she attempted to obtain a de-th certificate for RaeLa, she discovered some shocking news. “I ended up finding out I have an adoption open with some lady,” she explained.
Well, she searched the lady’s name on social media and stumbled on several photos of who she believes is her baby. Omg she looks just like my other kids,” she said.
The adoptive mother detailed her story online and shared that she was called the same day Damea gave birth. The adoptive mother was apparently told that the maternity ward at the hospital was closing and she was selected to take the last baby home. Did we mention that Damea finally had the strength to open the urn the hospital gave her and discovered it was empty? Crazy. Since the story began to gain some traction, the adoptive family has deleted all of their social media and public accounts of their adoption process. People have been using the hashtag #BringRaeLaHome to spread the word and also piece together all of the missing information. It truly is a wild story.
Shannon Sescoe – I need the follow up story to this like ASAP Rocky. Those people know they wrong. Not their kid.
Sabryna Torchiano – The story seems like it has some loopholes: I don’t know for sure, but since when do they cremate people at a hospitalThe story seems like it has some loopholes: I don’t know for sure, but since when do they cremate people at a hospital and give urns, and they asked the birth mom if she wanted to see her deceased baby and she replied no…what if she said yes? The hospital took chances that day
Toni Yancey – I think the girl lied to the baby father..who has a urn and don’t open it till 2 years later! This story has so many holes on it! Two plus two do t equal four
Charles Baptiste-Williams II – I love how people make absolute judgements based off of two paragraphs of this family’s story.
Nalumu Jackline – If it was a black family,this admin would term it human theft or trafficking or whatever but since it was a white family…..
Brooke Supercalifragilistic – This story stinks so bad! The first thing, would be them cremating the baby without a signature or consent! Another thing is that, what hospitalThis story stinks so bad! The first thing, would be them cremating the baby without a signature or consent! Another thing is that, what hospital calls and says “we have the last baby, do you want it?” I’m not believing these people are as innocent as they are trying to portray, Raela was stolen, needs to be returned, and detain and law suits need to happen!!!
