  1. I would like to know the full story. Why this woman would give up her twins or did the govt take them from her.

  2. Go to under the title “Who kidnapped Whom First?” and you will get a concise and compelling story of Allison Quets and her twins adoption proceedings. Her children were taken from her.


    M&E: It may be compelling, but kidnapping the children was not the answer.

  3. She had hyperemesis (“bad morning sickness”) throughout her pregnancy. This led to her thinking she couldn’t take care of them. So through a friend, she got in contact with the Needhams.

    But when she recovered from her pregnancy she asked for her kids back. The Needhams of Florida refused, figuring a deal is a deal. They even bought a house in North Carolina for custody visits.

    Thus the Needhams are the cause of this kidnapping.


    SM: Quets certainly did not help her position by what she did.

  4. The Needhams are selfish {{edit}}. Ms Quets–who feared her ill health–wanted her children back within 48 hours of birth. What sort of human beings would STILL take those children when their mother wanted them? These kids will hate them till their deaths for this.
