LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - The former co-director of a Little Rock adoption agency continued her testimony Thursday, trying to explain why the program took families' money but never connected them with children.

Donna Gail Hight said she was as much a victim as the families, claiming her ex-husband Ed Webb was the real scammer. She said she was physically and emotionally abused by her ex and didn't know what was going on behind the scenes.

Investigators can't find Webb and think he may have moved overseas.

Adoption Advantage closed in 2009 after dozens of complaints from clients.
