NEW YORK — The mother of a 23-year-old woman snatched from a New York City hospital when she was an infant says their reunion was a miracle but their relationship is difficult.

Joy White told NBC television on Tuesday that she and her daughter Carlina White are like strangers. She says she wants to spend time with her so they can get to know each other.

But Joy White says she understands why her daughter, who lives in Atlanta, would want to continue her relationship with the people who raised her. She says that’s all her daughter knows.

Ann Pettway of Raleigh, North Carolina, is being held without bail on charges she kidnapped Carlina in 1987. The FBI says Pettway took the newborn after her own efforts at childbearing failed.
