It has been 30 years since Kimberly Mays, now 41, discovered she was switched at birth. Now, she’s revealing new details about the high-profile custody battle and running away from both families. 

“I wasn’t prepared for, like, life,” Mays said in a new interview with ABC’s 20/20 airing Friday.

Mays was born in Florida in late 1978 and went home with new parents Bob and Barbara Mays. Barbara died of ovarian cancer three years later.

When Mays was 9 years old, a different set of parents, who were at the hospital the day she was born, discovered Mays was actually their biological daughter.
