    A woman is suing is suing the Canary Island health services for 3 million euros ($4.7 million) for a mix-up at the maternity hospital which led to her being taken home by the wrong mother twenty eight years ago.

    The woman discovered she had an identical twin when she was mistaken for someone else in a shop in 2001.

    Her sister was brought up alongside another girl, believing they were twins.

    As an adopted person, I have nothing for contempt for this woman. To me, our parents are who raise you; who love you and who stand by you and to sue the hospital at this late date dishonors the parents who raised her.

    But I'm not one to let my feelings fester. What's done, is done.

    The woman is suing for emotional distress. However, the woman claims that she wishes that she had never found out about the mistake. So therefore her emotional distress resulted from being told about the mistake? If so, should the hospital have with held the truth?

    When saying that she wished she had never found out, slapping down a lawsuit certainly won't help her emotionally. Like most lawsuits this reeks of greed and not emotional distress.
