Alan and Judith Kilshaw (pictured with the children) tried to buy them online for £ 8,200 in 2001. Right: the girls on their 16th birthday.

Alan and Judith Kilshaw of Buckley, in north Wales, bought twins born in Missouri over the Internet 17 years ago in a deal that shocked the world.
The deal was already complete and the twins returned to Wales when the Kilshaws realized that a couple from California had already paid for the custody of the children through an adoption agency, all thanks to a scam perpetrated by their mother biological
The FBI became involved, sparking an international legal battle that eventually ended with the upbringing of a third group of adoptive parents in Missouri.
But in 2006 Wecker had promised to recover full custody of the children. She gained access to see them that year.
It is alleged that Wecker, who has given birth to six children, including a four-year-old boy, tried to take advantage of a book contract by telling his story about the scandal.
Now she is locked in a bitter custody battle with her third husband, Toney Miller, for her young son.
