This is a really good movie that I watched back when it
aired on Lifetime in October and
reviewed it. It's good
to have a copy for my DVD collection. I think everyone
should watch this movie because it tells a very interesting
Included on the DVD is a documentary about the real life
Carlina and her family, "Beyond the Headlines: The Carlina
White Story". Unfortunately, the real life story does
not have as much of a happy ending as the Lifetime movie, it
sounds like. But life is like that, I guess. It was
interesting to see the real-life people and compare them to
their TV counterparts. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Experience the mystery that captivated American audiences, the
emotional true story of one woman's journey to solve her own

(TV's "The View"), this Lifetime® Original Movie attracted 4.1
million viewers upon its television premiere. The DVD includes
Lifetime's one-hour TV documentary going beyond the headlines of the
real Carlina White story (which attracted 3.5 million viewers). The

In August of 1987, new parents Joy White and Carl Tyson took their
19-day-old daughter Carlina to Harlem Hospital in New York with a
high fever. Ann Pettway, who had suffered a series of miscarriages
and was desperate for a child of her own, posed as a hospital nurse
and walked out of the hospital with Carlina hidden from view. While
Joy and Carl desperately searched for their daughter over the years,
Pettway was raising Carlina in Bridgeport, Connecticut--a mere 45
miles from New York City. As Carlina grew older she began to suspect
Pettway was not her birth mother and launched her own investigation.
