Video: Maureen and Elayne Search to be Reunited with Their Birth Families

These are two touching adoption stories about women adopted into two families. The women then begin to search to be reunited with their birth families.

Irish-born Maureen remembers being adopted at age 2 to parents with a strange accent.  Moving to the U.S., Maureen grew up with an adopted brother. She believes her birth mother did what she hoped was best for Maureen, born Mary-Margaret. As an adult, she began the search for her birth mother.

The second story is Elayne – an adoptee who decided to search for her birth mother when she became a mother herself. It took years of searching with so many obstacles along the way. But the search led to surprising information:  Elayne found she had a sister.
