Daughter Never Met Her Mom In All 77 Years Of Her Life. Then A Miracle Had Them Both In Tears 1k
If Minka could have had one wish during her life, it would have been to meet her daughter. Minka was 16 years old at a picnic with her friends in 1928 before she was the victim of assault and rape. In one horrific day, she went from being a young schoolgirl still learning about her own body and changes to being pregnant with a baby, with no clue on how to carry on with life.
She kept it quiet and her family did so too, giving birth in secrecy to baby girl Betty Jane. She knew she couldn’t look after the baby girl at her age so she was given up for adoption at the hospital straight after birth.
But as the years went by, Minka grew ever more interested on how her baby girl turned out. She looked for her far and wide, but knew it wouldn’t be easy and quite possibly may never see her again. But a miracle was in store for Minka and her daughter Betty Jane, as they were brought together and got to meet after 77 years.
Her prayer, “Lord, I’d like to see Betty Jane before I die. I promise I won’t bother her or interrupt her life. I just want to lay eyes on her”.
