Stevenson, speaking with a foreign news agency, claims that she does not remember most of her things from her past except her last name being Williams, adding that she took to Google to search for children who had gone missing with her last name.

Her details were revealed through her information and reports of her disappearance. The woman added that she came across Williams’ photo during the search result.

“And Brittany Renee Williams’ photo popped up,” she was quoted saying by the foreign news agency. “I woke my wife up out of her sleep and was like, ‘This is me! I know me when I see me. This is me!'”

Stevenson’s wife Ladajah Kelly said that there was a stark resemblance between her partner and the pictures of Brittany “from the hairline to the ears, to the smile, to the chin.”

“Even the mole on her neck … I started putting the pieces together that that was really her,” Kelly added.

Stevenson claims of having a spotty memory of the time she had spent during her time at the foster home named Rainbow Kids which is being operated by Kim Parker.

Police stated that several persons contacted the county’s child protective services to express their concern about neglect, maltreatment towards the children.

The court documents mentioned that Parker Was indicted of more than fraud. The suspect allegedly took $24,000 in government benefits that were for Brittany.

The test found that there was more than 95 per cent chance of them being half-sisters but the birthdate is different Stevenson was not diagnosed with HIV or AIDS.

“Blood does not lie and a DNA test does not lie at all, she added. “So, I don’t have AIDS, but I am Brittany Renee Williams.”
