California woman connected with daughter 77 years after adoption
In 2006, a woman living in San Clemente, California was contacted by what would turn out to be her grandson. The man was seeking information on medical history because his mother was having heart problems. His mother turned out to be the woman’s daughter that she gave up for adoption 77 years prior.
That phone call was the most amazing gift the woman could have ever received. She had been searching for her daughter for years and had nearly given up the chance of ever seeing her again. The woman, now 100-years-old, had been sexually assaulted as a teenager and became pregnant as a result. She was not able to care for the child and chose adoption.
The girl grew up in a great environment and always knew that she was adopted. She married and had four children of her own. She was pleasantly surprised to learn that her biological mother was still living and they met shortly after that phone call. The two have kept in touch ever since and the woman has been able to meet all of her grandchildren.
