This is the beautiful moment a mother and daughter were brought to tears as the met for the VERY FIRST TIME in their lives.
Ann Blodgett had not seen her daughter, Laurie Joncas, since giving her up for adoption in September 1965 – and so emotions were running high when the two finally came face-to-face.
Approaching on a walkway in front of a beach, Ann and Laurie embraced, the emotions causing Laurie to even fall to her knees in floods of tears.
Mother Ann, 73, said that in the days when she gave up Laurie, being an unwed mom was a taboo and she was not in a position to raise a child.
Fast forward to April 2017, and Ann received a call from her niece, Beth, to say that she had matched with Ann’s daughter on a DNA website, which stated Laurie would be the Beth’s first cousin.
Knowing all of her other cousins, Ann’s niece had concluded only one thing: Laurie must be Ann’s daughter.
In August 2017, Ann and Laurie arranged to meet in person in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but it wasn’t until recently that Ann decided to upload the video to social media and share her unique story.
