Now this is a lovely story…
Brooke Mayo never stopped thinking of the rosy-cheeked little girl she gave up for adoption nearly three-quarters of a century ago.
She was certain, though, that she’d never again see the child she had named Delphine. After all, she’d been told in 1945 that the girl had died.
Indeed, it wasn’t until this past July that the little girl, whose adoptive parents had renamed her Patricia, walked through the door of Mayo’s Paso Robles home.
‘I was in a daze,’ the 89-year-old woman told the San Luis Obispo Tribune, which reported on the reunion Sunday. ‘I’m still in a daze. I can’t believe this. The people I talk to say it’s like a book or a movie or something, it’s just so amazing.’
We love a happy ending!
