SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A Valley woman has been in a fight with Target for nearly a year. She says Target was supposed to ship her items but that they never arrived. So what does Target have to say?

Being a loving and caring mom means everything to Sandy Tisnado. 

"It is the biggest gift from God. Kids are a blessing. I wouldn't change the world for anything," she said.  

One thing that hasn't changed is her ongoing battle with Target. According to Tisnado, the problem started when she signed up to use Target's registry. 

"A friend from church told us to sign up for a baby registry so that they can buy us gifts. It was my first time ever doing a registry," she said. 

Using Target's registry, Tisnado said she picked out several baby items including a Pack-N Play set, a stroller and a car seat.  The items were all purchased by out-of-state relatives.

"Just basically the big stuff that got purchased, which was the items we really wanted," Tisnado said. 

At the time, Tisnado said she printed out the registry confirmation, showing the items had been purchased. Target reportedly told her to go to a store to pick up the items, but when Tisnado attempted to do so Target changed the game plan, she said. 

"We go there and they said they were going to be sent over to our house, but we have not received anything," she said. 

According to Tisnado, Target indicated the baby items were going to be shipped directly to her house, however, the Scottsdale mom said she never received anything and that she's been fighting with Target for a year to do something about it.  To complicate matters, Tisnado is pregnant again and said she could use the items when her next child arrives.

"I just want the items that were purchased to be brought to us because I feel like those are ours and that we should have them," she said.  

Target says it's still looking into the matter, so we'll let you know what they decide to do in a follow-up story.
