Mother gets a different baby - level 1

This happens in El Salvador. A woman goes to hospital. She is pregnant. She gives birth at the hospital.

She leaves the hospital a few days later. People there give the woman her baby. She sees that her baby looks different. It has a different colour skin.

The woman thinks that this is strange. She wants a DNA test. This test tells her that the baby is not her baby.

After months, the mother meets her baby. She is very happy.

Difficult words: pregnant (to have a baby inside a woman’s body), a few (a small number of), strange (not normal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think about this incident with the baby?
