Drawing on numerous interviews and correspondence with many Tann’s surviving victims, Barbara Raymond shows how Tann not only popularised adoption – which until then had been feared and discouraged, but also marketed and corruptedShe tells how Tann abducted babies or forced women to leave their children from her care and sell themTo cover his abduction falsified crimes birth certificates, a practice that has been approved by legislators who believe it would be an alternative to the adoption of the defilement of illegitimacy – one that still holds today in the form of’changed into’ birth certificates and closed adoption recordsThe discovery of much life without stories along the way, Raymond tells how Tann openly sold over 5 000 children, and killed so much neglect that Memphis infant mortality rate climbed to the highest in the countryIt examines how Tann’s operation was able to prosper in a Tennessee governed by the “Boss” Ed Crump and the political network that allowed him to operate with impunityAnd she camps the lack of options available to women, affecting not only the birth of mothers, she stole, but also Tann herself, who turned to social work after being banned for a “male profession” – the lawWritten by an adoptive mother, The Thieving Baby is a part of social history, part of detective history, and part of exposing itIt is a captivating story investigation that explores the themes that continue to spread in the modern era, when baby vendors operate abroadIt is particularly relevant at this time in the UK, in the midst of heated national debate over controversial adoption targets that appear to provide a perverse incentive to remove babies from the birth of parents
