I just came across this after searching for a final update to this story and I have to say I agree 100% with your thoughts on this case. Do you know of the final outcome of Maria and her placement? It sadly seemed to me that once DNA testing identified, Maria, as a biological "Gypsy," that interest in this story disappeared. After locating and interviewing her biological family, the story was dropped without reporting her final placement, the outcome of the family she was found with or even just her overall well being. I wish very much to send supplies to her as the conditions of her biological family broke my heart. But even more I am bothered by what seemed to me as widespread mistreatment of the Roma people. I live in the U.S. and so I understand that there is likely much history there that I am not aware of and do not understand but at some point we have to stop the hate. But even here, I emailed my local news station who also covered the story asking for a follow-up to the story just last year and haven't even been acknowledged. I'm not sure why, but this has stuck with me for the past two years. If you or anyone have an update, please inform me! Thanks!
