Touching Story! This 88-Year-Old Mother Reunites With Daughter She Thought Died At Birth

Genevieve Purinton, an 18-year-old unwed mother, gave birth to her precious little girl at an in Indiana in 1949. Staffers delivered a horrifically cruel blow to her because she was not married: they informed her that her daughter had died at birth. “I mentioned that I wanted to see the baby. “They said she,” Purinton recalled. Her baby girl, on the other hand, was found alive and taken to an orphanage, where she was adopted by a couple from California.

Connie Moultroup, her daughter, was aware that she was adopted but had no idea about the tragic circumstances surrounding her adoption. “Her adoptive mother of was diagnosed with a heart condition shortly after, and her adoptive father was diagnosed with a heart condition shortly after,” Bonnie Chase, Moultroup’s daughter, told CNN.

Chase explained that while her adoptive father remarried, her stepmother did not. “So the whole time, she just wanted to find her real mother and get her out of that situation,” Chase explained.

Purinton, who had no other children, never forgot the baby girl she thought she had at birth. Moultroup looked for her for years, but she didn’t find her until Chase gave her an Ancestry DNA kit. “It took me a while to use it, but when I did, I went from having only three known relatives (a daughter and two grandchildren) to 1,600.” “I was stunned,” she said.

She tracked down a cousin, who revealed that Purinton was still alive and alone at the age of 88. “When I told her my mother’s name was Genevieve Purinton, she said, ‘Oh, that’s my aunt.’ “And she’s still alive and well, living on her own,” Moultroup said. Moultroup sent Purinton a card with her contact information, and the women agreed to meet at Purinton’s retirement community in Tampa.”

I finally met my mother and cousin, and we both cried. “It was just a crying match,” Moultroup explained. “Not everyone has this kind of result when looking for their parents, but I recommend you give it a try because you never know what will happen.” Purinton and Moultroup both sobbed as they hugged each other, with Purinton exclaiming, “You’re really not!” “I’m not,” Moultroup replied.

“It’s been a lifetime of wanting this,” Moultroup sobbed. “When I was five years old, I wished I could find my mother.” Mother and daughter are finally together again, nearly 70 years later, with a family to love despite all the lost time.
