If reports are correct, Allison Lee Quets just escalated this kidnapping and has created a real mess for herself. Not only has she taken these children across state lines, she has now escalated the problem by going across international borders.

      From Associated Press:

      Missing N.C. twins found in Canada

      RALEIGH, N.C. – A biological mother accused of kidnapping her 17-month-old twins from their adoptive parents in North Carolina has been arrested in Canada, and authorities say the children are safe.
      Allison Lee Quets, 49, and the twins were found Friday night when police in Ottawa, Canada, acted on a tip, the FBI said in a statement early Saturday. The toddlers, Tyler Lee and Holly Ann Needham, were placed in the custody of Canadian Social Services.
      Quets could face federal charges of international parental kidnapping.
      A custody agreement allowed Quets to take the children for a brief visit Dec. 22-24, but authorities said she never returned them. The FBI said an investigation indicated Quets crossed the Canadian border with the twins Dec. 23.
      The children lived in the Raleigh suburb of Apex with their adoptive parents, Denise and Kevin Needham. Quets had a home in nearby Durham.
      Officials with the FBI Victim Witness program were arranging for the adoptive parents to travel to Canada to be with their children.

      Just saw this old article in a google search and wanted to mention there is an error in the children’s names. They are, as of December 2006, Tyler and Holly QUETS. The Needhams had not finalized any adoption and simply had physical custody. Seems the Needhams or someone lied about there names.

      This case is still being litigated.

      Typo in the previous post should read: “thier names.”

      Your position in this case is clear from your blog post, as my position is clear from my words. These children were stole from their mother when she was ill, handed over to family members by John Gurley after hours in an attorney’s office. Who brings someone 5 weeks postpartum, someone who nearly died multiple times during and after pregnancy, to a marathon attorney session?

      This case is not about adoption but about baby brokering and protecting Michael Shorstein, who enjoined himself to the Needhams, thus making Allison Quets’s legal, moral, and ethical rights to parent her children mean nothing. The case became about protecting Michael Shorstein, nephew of the Attorney General of the State of Florida. Then, after Shorstein was protected and his baby brokering could continue, he did continue. Listen for the voices (not as loud as Quets) of women whose infants were stolen by Shorstein in the name of adoption. This Jacksonville baby brokering group that Shorstein leads dirties all legitimate adoptions.
