In some cases, parents have to give up their babies. Maybe it’s because the parents are too young, or they don’t have enough resources and it’s not the right time. But it doesn’t mean that they don’t want relationships with their children. Take Lauren Hedegore and her biological dad, Bill Hargwig.
When Lauren was born, Bill and Lauren’s mother were forced to give her up. He didn’t want to let her go, but she was taken in by a kind and loving family who told her that she was adopted.
Lauren wanted to meet her birth parents her whole life. And thanks to a friend and a genealogy website, she was able to track her birth mother and meet her.
Subsequently, the woman updated her Facebook profile and posted photos of her and her daughter.
One sleepless night, Bill was scanning the internet and found his ex’s Facebook profile.
He also saw the photos of her and her daughter. He looked at the birthday of the second woman and realized that she shared a birthday with the daughter he had given up 25 years before. It wasn’t just an eerie coincidence: it really was her!
Now, the two are bonding and getting to know one another’s families. They couldn’t be happier to be reunited!
