    Delivery Truck Driver Finds Birth Mom at Cash Register

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,317487,00.html


    A 22-year-old delivery truck driver searched for his birth mother for years. Little did he know, she was just a few aisles away.
    In 1985, Christine Tallady gave up her newborn son for adoption because she said she wasn't ready to be a mother.
    More than 20 years later, Steve Flaig began his search, finding his birth mother's name through an open adoption record, according to a report in The Grand Rapids Press.

    While this is extremely touching and wonderful...

    I can't help to think I'd never date someone young enough to be my child, if I had given one up for adoption... just in case it was him.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!

    I appreciate that the mother left the adoption record open just in case her son wanted to find her. You don't hear about that too often.

    They didn't date. Glitch was just posturing.

    This is such a great story!! I have a similar one, hope no one gets mad if I tell it here...

    My dad who raised me died when I was 17, 11 years ago. When he died my Aunt told me My dad was still out there I just had to find him. Not a big shock as I always felt different from those in my family. So for 10 years I searched and searched with no luck. All I had was a name and an age. I was the product of a one night stand. So one day I was sitting here at the puter and decided to google his name and see what popped up. So the first site that came up was A comidian's website, so I clicked and there he was. I knew instantly just by looking at him, we look just like one another. So I decided to write him, and can you believe he had been waiting for me to find him!! A man they worked with told him my mom had a baby a couple years after I was born although he told him she had a boy. So long story short as soon as he replied we met for lunch and have seen each other all the time since.
