A Birth Mother’s Reunification Story

I just wanted to share a touching reunification story of a birth mother and the daughter she placed for adoption over 77 years ago.   I have the honor of knowing this birth mother, Minka.  She resides locally in Orange County. Believe me when I tell you, at 100 years old, her tenacity is only outweighed by the love she holds for God and her family.  Her adoption story is pretty incredible, almost as incredible as she is. As I read her story, I’m reminded how a child remains in the heart and thoughts of a mother, despite passing years and distance. And how incredibly healing open adoption can be, even if it’s several decades later….
