Mom Places Son For Adoption. 22 Years Later She Can’t Believe How He Traced Her

Raising a child is a monumental task. In October 1985, Christine Tallady knew she wasn’t prepared to raise her newborn son on her own, so she put him up for adoption. She left the adoption records open so that if her son ever wanted to find her, he could. Fast forward 18 years. Christine’s son, Steven, did want to find her and he began looking for his birth mother.

He wasn’t having much luck. In 2007, two years later, Steve (now 20) realized he had been misspelling Christine’s name (which explains why he couldn’t find her). When he finally found her, she was living really close to where he was living. Watch the video to find out what happened!

Take a look

Steve worked at a Lowe’s in Grand Rapids as a delivery driver. As it turns out, his birth mother also worked at a Lowe’s in Grand Rapids. Fate? You tell me! Share away, people!
