    It is impossible that this child was abducted from the United States to Costa Rica by foster parents, because they would not have been able to obtain American Passport for her and could not board a plane with her either. Lafreda, a clearly black child, accompanied by two white adults would have undoubtedly drawn much suspicion and airport staff have been known to call the police to people who attempting to leave the country with a child. Where were Lafreda’s mother and more importantly social services when these foster parents supposedly spirited Lafreda off to Costa Rica? It seems to me that this case would have become an international scandal and media circus if thieving foster parents truly somehow managed to flee from the United States to Costa Rica with an American born child they did not have any legal rights to. Ergo I am inclined to believe that the Lindlers must be Lafreda’s adoptive parents with rights to take her out of the United States and for some reasons her birth mother filed a deliberately misleading police report with authorities in Florida at a later date after the Lindler family have travelled to Costa Rica.

    I have seen cases of stepparents, without the biological parent, running off with non-biological/legal children even to foreign countries, so why not foster parents? Her foster parents seem to be well off, the foster dad starting a company in Costa Rica(US Tax International at San Jose) around the time she was taken there and yet between 1995 and her birth mother’s death in 2004, she supposedly was nowhere to be found and wasn’t stumbled upon until summer 2009. That tells me no one in the United States was searching too intensely for her and didn’t believe she was in any sort of danger despite being accompanied by two unrelated adults of a different race. If one “followed the money” in addition to the fact you mentioned that a black baby with white adults sticks out like a sore thumb then Lafreda was easily located compared to other missing children.
