“It’s been 13,075 days since you last saw me,” he wrote. “I didn’t want to wait for you again.”

Teenage mothers are not always morally or financially prepared to take care of their children at a very early age. Their joy is often passed on through adoption and new families are formed as a result. This was the case with Stacey Fax, who gave birth at the age of 15 about 35 years ago.

This woman believed she would never see her son ever again, but, fortunately, this did not happen. In November 2017, the state of Pennsylvania passed a law allowing adopted children to obtain information about their biological parents. When the son of Fax, Stephen Straun, found out about this, he decided to meet with the woman who brought him into this world.

she obtained the documents and began a search after learning the name of his biological mother. “That’s a lot of sighs,” She told Inside Edition.

The first thing he did was find it on Facebook. This is one of the biggest benefits of social media, and I think you can connect with people who have been lost for a long time. When She found a woman with that name, she said, “Hey, I have a really strange question. Did you give the boy up for adoption in 1982? ” She received the answer she had been waiting for. And she said, “I think you can be my biological mother.”

This mother and son had two common interests. It became clear that both of them would participate in the Pittsburgh Half Marathon as part of the Red, White and Blue organizations.

Race day was the day the long-lost mother hugged her son. However, Fax never expected to meet his son. She realized that this would only happen if someone gave him a card with the inscription: “It’s been 13,075 days since you last saw me.” I didn’t want to wait for you another day. ”

“We’ve probably hugged about 10 times,” Straun said. “We hugged, looked at each other and hugged again. It happened so quickly that in the end it felt really surreal. “
