Soul Searching – The Day I Met My Birth Mother

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman March 18, 2015

We all go through a period of soul searching. A time when we dig deep and attempt to discover who we really are at our core.

The woman in this video always intended to search for her birth mother, but when she turned 18 she didn’t really like who she was. Her personal soul searching began while the search for her birth mother was postponed.

But once she began having children of her own, she knew it was time. Through a letter her birth mother left for her with the agency, she was able to track her down. This is the artistically edited version of one adoptee finding and reuniting with her birth mother.
