This is what happened to two mums who had their babies mixed up by blundering hospital staff in Russia.
Devastated Zarema Tiasumova and Anna Androsova have finally swapped their children back after DNA tests.
Zarema is so upset she still sits outside the other boy’s house to be close to the child she brought up as her own.
The truth was revealed when Anna and her husband requested DNA tests after the baby she had been given developed dark skin and hair.
Anna said: “It was a nightmare. I loved little Nikita but somehow always knew something wasn’t quite right.
“There was no family resemblance and my husband was suspicious.”
Heartbroken mom Zarema, who called the lad she raised Aldan, refused to swap him for real son Nikita until Anna went to court.
Zarema said: “I can’t turn off my love like a switch or a light.
“I loved him for two years and will always feel I am his real mother. Of course, I am happy to have my own son but you can’t help the way you feel. Just sitting outside Aldan’s house made me feel closer to him.”
My heart goes out to these families. Two years is a long bonding time to have to forget. Birthdays, Christmas, first steps, first words…so SAD.
