100-Year Old Birthmom

This news piece has really captivated me this week. As a birthmom in a closed adoption, I know there are those of us who will never reunite with our birth children, we will never know the rest of the story.

But this one is so different. The adopted child is 77 years old! She is a mother and a grandmother towards the end of her life. Can you imagine undertaking such a major event as looking up your birthmother at that age? And then to find out she is still living at 100. The whole story is amazing.

I love seeing stories like this in the news. It encouraged me that there are others like me. I'm not the only birthmother in a closed adoption. I'm not alone in my experience.
