“Considering the fact that I was adopted, I think my mom was bitter because she knew that I wasn’t her child,” claims Katelyn, adding, “She took the only biological human being in this world that is mine.”

“I’m almost 24 now and I have a full-time job. I have my own apartment,” she continues. “My son is a little over a year and a half. Every day that I wake up I wonder does he know who I am? Give me my child back.”

Sandy vehemently denies “stealing” Katelyn’s son. She says she enjoys being a grandmother but claims she wants Katelyn to have her son. “It’s permanent custody that can be reversed if Katelyn would go through the steps to regain custody.”
