An unexpected family

Genevieve Purinton is 88 years old, and lives in Tampa, Florida. She never raised any children, and her siblings have all passed away, so she's alone in the world. She did have a baby when she was 18. She was going to up it up for adoption until she was told it died at birth. Which wasn't exactly true.

Doctors told Genevieve the baby died to make the adoption process easier for her. But Connie (Moultroup) didn't die.  She was adopted and grew up in California. Today she's 69 years old, and last Christmas she got an Ancestry DNA kit as a gift. She soon found out Genevieve is her biological mom. Recently they met for the first time, and it was emotional. Genevieve is not alone anymore. She has a daughter, and two great-grandchildren.
