The True Story of a Lost Child, Lifetime of Longing, and a Miracle for a Mother Who Never Gave Up. The unthinkable happened one day back in 1928 to a 16-year-old girl having an innocent picnic in the woods.
Minka Disbrow became the victim of rape. The horrifying incident led to Minka finding out she was pregnant.
Due to the nature of the incident, the baby was delivered in secret and put up for immediate adoption. Baby Betty Jane would remain on Minka’s mind for years to follow. Naturally a birth mother wants has an ingrained instinct to want to know her child is alright. Minka attempted to reach out to learn how the baby was doing, if in fact she was doing well and was healthy. Unfortunately she never received any word back.
Minka prayed for the child’s well being while still having hope that one day she would be able to meet her before she died. She simply wanted to see her daughter, not interfere with her life in anyway. Minka just wanted to lay eyes on her and ensure she was alright. Eventually the phone did ring, and the news on the other end was positive, and 80 years in the waiting. Apparently a judge released the previously sealed adoption records to her daughter, who was now 77-years-old.
Here’s is the amazing event that unfolded as a woman in her 90’s, meets her 77-year-old daughter for the first time ever, Jesus is great!
