A Reunification and a Mother’s Secret Revealed

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman January 19, 2015

After being raped, a young woman was forced to place her child for adoption. It was kept so secret that none of the young woman’s family knew anything about the birth. The family moved from the town and the young woman eventually got married. She and her husband had a family.

Then in 2010 some miraculous events took place. The little boy placed for adoption had been searching for decades to find his birth mother. The great-grandson of the woman had gotten involved in genealogical research and happened upon Fred, the adopted boy, who was searching. One thing led to another, and when this birth mother was in her 80s, the secret was exposed and her son found her. This is their touching reunification.
