Mercy Casanalles gave birth to a baby boy in Texas. When the nurse handed the baby to her Mercy said that the child wasn’t hers. But, what could they do? She and her husband, Rich Cushworth, took the baby home. But Mercy just had this feeling that told her something wasn’t right

Rich Cushworth and his wife Mercy Casanalles fell in love when they met at Christ for the Nations missionary school in Dallas. When Mercy got pregnant, she had to return home to give birth, as she was in Texas with a temporary visa from El Salvador. Rich stayed in the U.S. and awaited his wife’s return. However, as soon as the nurse handed Mercy her newborn son Jacob, she knew something was terribly wrong.

When it comes time to have your baby, the excitement at meeting this person that has been growing inside of you for nine months is overwhelming.

For most moms, it can also be a stressful time as nobody knows exactly how their labor is going to go. For Mercedes Casanellas, she went into labor five weeks early and had to have an emergency C-section.

After a few months, Mercy had a DNA test and found out their son, Jacob, was not their son! It was heartbreaking, even though the baby wasn’t biologically their son, Rich and Mercy had bonded with him. The DNA results left them wondering where could their biological son was if he wasn’t with them.

“When I got him, I said, ‘This is not my baby,’” Mercy told WFAA.

She suspected she had got the wrong child. But doctors insisted it was the right baby and blamed her suspicions on the medication she had been given during and after her labor.

Finally, Richard and Mercedes decided to have a DNA test to find out the truth once and for all.

When the results came, their suspicions were confirmed, the child they had been raising for nine months was not their son, writes The Guardian.

After reaching out to the proper officials, Mercy and Rich returned Jacob to his biological family. However, the El Salvadorian government was not welcoming to their biological son Moses.They refused to give him a birth certificate or passport to travel to the United States for an entire year.

After a long battle with the government, Rich and Mercy have come back home with their baby boy.

“[We’re] very thankful, very happy,” Rich said.
