A woman who desperately wanted a baby, was arrested after she returned her newborn baby to its biological mother because she was of a mixed race.
According to police, the 35-year-old woman of Rome, Italy, fooled her family by pretending to be pregnant.
The woman who recently suffered two miscarriages, bought a latex pregnancy belly online and told her family she was expecting a baby girl.
The woman’s husband was serving time in prison and she did not want to tell him about her latest miscarriage.
Instead, she paid $22,000 to buy a baby from a woman who was pregnant and did not want to keep the child.
The baby’s biological mother said that she was in a short relationship with a man from Mali, Africa, who worked in Rome, when she became pregnant and she decided not to keep the girl.
She was in contact with a man who is a Moroccan citizen, and he arranged for the baby to be sold to the 35-year-old woman.
After the baby’s birth, she was handed over to her adoptive mother, who called authorities asking how to register a baby who was born at home.
They scheduled a meeting to discuss the matter. Authorities became suspicious after the women did not attend the scheduled meeting.
When police questioned the woman, she admitted that she was never pregnant and that she had arranged to adopt the baby.
However, the woman said that she returned the baby to her biological mother after seeing that she was of a mixed race because she will be unable to explain the color of the baby’s skin to her husband, family and friends.
Police arrested the 35-year-old woman, the baby’s biological mother and the man who mediated the sale.
Police have tracked down the baby’s biological father and he will take custody of the child.
