Betty gave birth at the young and tender age of 15, and bravely placed her newborn son for adoption. Now, 38 years later, Betty is blessed with the reunification she has only dreamed of for years and years.

They had only just found each other two weeks earlier. Both mother and son had been searching diligently for each other. Ricky — the baby son who is now a grown man and a preacher — knows that the way his life played out has been part of God’s plan.

The beautiful and joyous reunion has helped in the creation of long term reunification, as Ricky and his family have moved to live near his birth parents.
