- The mother of one lost her kid back in 1965 when she went to work

A happy mother in the United States has reunited with her child 55 years after losing him to a malicious babysitter.
Anna-Mary Barnett once headed out to work in 1965 and returned home to a life she grew to despise.
The lady who became a mother during her teen years was accustomed to leaving her kid with family members back in the 60s whenever she had to go to work.
One day, she had to leave her child with someone she did not know too well and when she returned to pick the boy, Barnett found out the lady left with the kid.
The mum whose life turned into a living hell told WLKY News that it was the scariest time of her life.
Legit.ng gathers that her son Jerry Barnett said the kidnapper abandoned him after the two moved to another state.
Jerry became a ward of the state after he was left all alone without the protection of a grown-up.
He was placed into the foster care system and was assigned a last name and a speculative birth date.
He had no papers so it was difficult to know where he came from and whose child he was.
But as fate would have it, Jerry reunited with his mum after 55 years and that was the best day of his long life.
“I was scared to get out the car. There was a mob. I thought somebody was going to kidnap me again,” the man said.
Jerry’s sad life turned him to an absent father who struggled to be present for his children.
In other news, family reunions are usually special occasions but in the case of one young man identified as Johnson on Twitter, his meeting with his mother after 17 years apart was a very touching one.
A heart-warming video of Johnson surprising him mum with his presence after they had been separated for 17 years recently hit social media and touched many people.
