Watch this tender video posted by a Des Moines, Iowa News channel. Jamie Parker (age 35) was finally reunited with her birth mother and birth sister. Birth mother Kim Collins knew there was a celebration in her honor, but didn’t expect to be meeting her daughter. She is a recent cancer survivor and was appreciative of all the attention. But the real excitement and joy came when she met her daughter, orchestrated by her other daughter, Ashley. For Jamie, Kim, and Ashley, this reunion provided a much-hoped-for and treasured afternoon.

As happens with many recently reunited families, Jamie was surprised at how comfortable it all felt. The similarities drew them together and created a loving, happy atmosphere – one they hope to continue to duplicate over and over.
