Abducted baby meets parents 18 years later

Mobley, 18, met her biological parents for the first time Saturday, WJXT reported.
Her biological father, Craig Aiken, told the station the reunion occurred at the Walterboro Police Department. He said he told his daughter that he loves her.
"The first meeting was beautiful," Aiken told the station. "It's a feeling that you can't explain."
DNA tests this week revealed that Mobley is Aiken's long-lost daughter, the same girl abducted as a newborn from a Florida hospital in July 1998 by a woman posing as a nurse, according to Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams.
Gloria Williams, 51, who Mobley believed was her mother, has been charged with kidnapping and interference with custody. She has waived extradition to Florida, WJXT reported.
Authorities said she used fraudulent documents to establish a new identity for Mobley.
"I love you, Momma'
The South Carolina detention center where Williams is being held without bond was the scene of another emotional meeting, this one on Friday.
Separated by a mesh screen, Williams blew a kiss to Mobley during a brief encounter, WJXT reported.
"I love you, Momma," the sobbing teenager told Williams.
For most of her life, Mobley lived under another name; authorities have not released it.
"She's beautiful, just like Gloria, a well-mannered child," Hiers told CNN Saturday, standing outside the detention center to deliver a message of support to Williams.
"She has positive energy. She's just a joy to be around. I know growing up she had the fanciest clothes and she had everything given to her that she wanted."
Hiers said she has known Williams for 16 years. She met Mobley when the girl was 2. Hiers used to braid her hair; Mobley called her "Aunt Missy."
Hiers learned about her friend's arrest from a Facebook post. There must be some mistake, she said.
"She's such a good person," Hiers said of Williams. "If you know her like I know her and the town knows her, this is not something that you would expect from her."
