A newborn infant is a great gift, especially for those of us who are more emotional and concerned about what can go wrong.
We can only fathom the anguish that women feel when they are pregnant and give birth to a baby only to learn that he or she is not alive.
Genevieve Purinton was 18 years old when she gave birth to a lovely child. Because she was a young and unmarried mom when she gave birth to her daughter in 1949, times were different. So the medics took the baby away from her and informed her that she did not live.
We can only imagine how much this news hurt her. Everything this lady desired was to hold her kid, but she was denied the opportunity.
“When I stated I wanted to see my kid, they said she was not alive,” Genevieve explained.
Genevieve did not have any more children after having a hysterectomy.
This wonderful woman, who had been through so much in her life, found herself living alone in sheltered accommodation at the age of 88. She is the sole survivor of an eight-child household.
But she had no idea what kind of surprise she was in for.
A woman named Connie took a DNA test almost 2,500 kilometers distant from Genevieve’s home to uncover her ancestors.
Connie was just a few days old when she was adopted. But she had always wondered where her genuine biological mom was since she was five years old and instantly began striving to find out.
Her investigation led her to a woman who identified Connie’s birth mother as her aunt and informed her that she was still alive.
The reunion was emotional and heartwarming, and the wonderful lady no longer feels alone in the world after finding her precious daughter and having grandkids and great-grandchildren.
The reunion is in the video below. This is an excellent example of why it is never too late.
