An elderly woman living in San Clemente, California was ecstatic when she received a call in 2006 that would reconnect her with the daughter she gave up for adoption as a teenager.
The woman, now 100-years-old, had been assaulted as a teenager and became pregnant as a result. She was not able to keep the child and therefore a pastor and his wife raised the girl as their own. She was always curious how her daughter turned out and wrote letters for many years before the agency lost touch.
Almost 77 years after the adoption took place, her daughter was searching for her with questions pertaining to medical history. She was not expecting her biological mother to still be living and they have been in touch ever since that phone call.
If you are considering adoption, please contact the Manhattan Beach adoption lawyers of the Law Offices of Baden V. Mansfield by calling 310-546-5858 today.
