A MALAGA woman has been reunited with her son, stolen from her just after his birth, who was adopted by a family in Benejuzar. Four years ago, they finally met in Murcia, but the case has come to light recently since investigations are being carried out into similar cases.
The mother, now 65, lived in Marbella with her husband and three children.
However, one son had been taken away from her 30 years ago as soon as he was born and she was threatened with prison if she complained.
The boy grew up in Benejuzar (Costa Blanca) and had always suspected he was adopted because he looked nothing like his parents.
Eleven years ago, he was preparing to get married and found that his birth certificate was missing.
His wife encouraged him to speak to his mother and confirm his suspicions.
She admitted he was adopted and that a relative who was a nun had organised the adoption, knowing that his biological mother was separated from her husband and was pregnant by another man.
He began to look for his biological mother and found out her surname from the same relative. He called all the people of the same surname in Marbella and finally found her.
