Romani family cared for girl for seven years, unaware she had been abducted

Los Angeles, 17.7.2010 18:51, (ROMEA)

Gypsy Family Raised Abducted Girl, Want Her Back

The whole intricate story of little Amber, who comes from a family of Romanian Roma, began when authorities took her away from her biological mother, who was addicted to drugs. US authorities found Amber a foster family in Los Angeles. However, Amber’s biological aunts and grandmother evidently could not reconcile themselves to losing her and abducted her before her first birthday. Police arrested two of the aunts, but a third, together with Amber’s grandmother, found another Romani family to raise her. For seven years that family never suspected the girl had been kidnapped by her relatives.

""She became part of our family. The family loved her and she loved us,” said Bill Jones, who has raised Amber as if he were her grandfather. The family named her Sandra and took exemplary care of her. However, when they tried to legalize their custody of her, they were unable to provide the right documents.

The family spoke to the television crew in the presence of their attorney, who said the family had committed no crime, but had done their best to love the girl and give her the best possible care. Shirley Frank, who had raised the girl as her own, broke into tears during the interview, saying, “There are no words that can describe the loss of a child.”
