Winnie Faye Higginbotham Yarber (now Winnie Faye Whitaker)

18 year old Winnie Faye Higginbotham Yarber was separated from her husband and became pregnant by another man. She was coerced by Lenora Fielding to use a false name on adoption documents. She inquired about keeping her child and was rebuffed. Adoption papers listed the child as Baby Boy Barnwell.

Eight days after the birth the child later known as Michael Chalek, went home with Alex and Adela Chalek, who bought him for $200 from baby broker Lenora Fielding. The Chaleks had hidden prior domestic violence and promiscuity issues in their adoption paperwork which would have prohibited an adoption.

Michael was physically and sexually abused by his adoptive parents. Michael Chalek had his adoption annulled and a new birth certificate issued with his birth mother's name. Michael Chalek's website: http://www.adoption-fraud.com/
