Guatemala - Pablo son of Elivia Ramírez Caño
Elivia Ramírez Caño's son was stolen moments after his birth August 13, 1997, in a Guatemala City hospital. The nurses took him away, saying he had been adopted. The arrangement had been made by an attorney, Javier Oswaldo Villatoro Morales, who found the pregnant 29-year-old Ramírez unemployed, abandoned by her husband and homeless. She says Villatoro Morales loaned her money and, during the birth, tricked her into signing adoption documents. A Spanish couple had contracted him to obtain the baby.
