70 years after she was told her child died in labour, mother and daughter re-unite
For nearly 70 years, an American woman Genevieve Purinton believed the baby she gave birth to in Indiana had died in the hospital.
However on Monday, 3rd December, she met that baby girl, now a 69-year-old woman named Connie Moultroup.
“Because she was an unmarried mother, she was told that I had died. She continued with her life not knowing I was still alive” Moultroup said.
Moultroup, who was adopted and raised in California, decided last year to use a DNA ancestry test to look for her birth mother. The two finally met in Tampa on Monday. “It was just a crying fest,” she said.
