Finding your Mom after 6 decades of searching

Its always heartwarming when you see families reunited.  This one has to set a record for the length of search.

An 81 year old woman in Ireland, who grew up in an orphanage, started searching for her birth mother when she was 19 years old.  Six decades later. with the help of a genealogist, discovered her mother, age 103,  alive and living in Scotland!

“There was such a bond between the two of us, it was fantastic. She’s such a kind lady, I said to my children that all this life I’ve loved this lady, even though I don’t know who she is,” Macken said, adding she didn’t want to stay too long due to her mother’s age.

Against all odds, her perseverance paid off.  Such a nice story.
