Barbara Walters Presents American Scandals looks into the heart wrenching case of Kimberly Mays and Arlena Twig, who were switched at birth.

Back in 1978 two baby girls born in the same Florida hospital were given to the wrong parents.

The mistake came to light when Arlena was having a blood test soon after she was born, sadly she died just nine years later of the chronic illness she’d had since birth. Soon after her death the Twigs decided to track down their biological daughter.

Kimberly was the subject of a legal battle for custody between her biological parents and the couple who had been her mum and dad all of her life.

Walters wants to find out what happened to Kimberly and after over 20 years the show manages to track her down.

She’s moved town numerous times and now works as a call center operator and brings up her three children.

However, she has clearly been through a lot and the reunion with Walters is emotional for both women.

Another case of switched at birth, this time it took 56 years to find out

Kimberly Mays: Switched at Birth at 8 PM on TLC – First aired Nov. 30, 2015.
