The maternal grandparents of one of the babies switched at birth at the U-V-A Medical Center say they want to adopt the child their daughter was raising.
That's according to the grandparent's attorney.
Three- year- old Rebecca Chittum's parents were among the seven killed in a July Fourth car accident.
D-N-A tests released yesterday show Chittum is the biological daughter of Paula Johnson.

Rebecca was apparently switched with three-year old Callie Johnson shortly after their birth in June of 1995.

President Clinton's testimony before the Monica Lewinsky grand jury Monday could open the door for new sanctions in the Paula Jones case.
In a statement issued by the Rutherford Institute in Charlottesville, Jones' attorney called the President's confession of misleading the public "extremely disturbing".
John Whitehead added that Clinton's admission discredits his denials of a sexual advance toward Jones.
