How a Mother and Daughter Met for the First Time–After 69 Years

Published

on

At 88-years-old and living in an assisted living home in Florida, Genevieve Purinton thought she was alone in this world. Her eight other siblings had passed away, and she had no children—or so she thought.

In 1949, at just 18 years old, Purinton gave birth to a little girl. “When I said I wanted to see the baby, they told me she died,” Purinton told Fox13 News in an emotional interview.

But after 69 years and with a little help from an AncestryDNA kit, Purinton was reunited with her daughter, Connie Moultroup.

“It’s been a lifetime of wanting this,” Moultroup said through joyful tears. “I remember being 5 years old, wishing I could find my mother.”

“It’s okay, it’s okay,” Moultroup whispered to her mother as they held an embrace for several minutes as if to make up for 69 years of time together lost.

Moultroup, who came from Vermont to meet her mother, received the AncestryDNA kit as a Christmas gift last year. With it, she found a cousin she’d never known before.

She gave the cousin her mother’s name, which is all she knew of her, and, amazingly, her cousin dropped a bombshell on Moultroup: “She said, ‘oh, that’s my aunt! By the way, she’s still alive!'”

“It’s good to meet you,” Moultroup said as she finally stood back, just a bit, from her mother’s arms. “Same to you,” Purinton said with a grin as her daughter wiped a tear from her eye.

Purinton looked into Moultroup’s eyes, saying, “you’re really not dead!”

“I’m not dead,” Moultroup said, igniting laughter in everyone who watched this incredible moment before falling back into another long overdue hug.

Purinton will spend the rest of her life now knowing that she is not alone. Not only has she found her daughter, Purinton also gained grandchildren and great-grandchildren through this incredible discovery.

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…

The Christian artist posted a video where he explained the meaning of the song saying it was intended to provide encouragement and support for parents who sometimes “insulate [hardships] from the ones we love, our children.” “So to see them go out there and do this real world it’s painful. I wrote this one for my boy,” TobyMac explained. “I wanted to let him know that I’m here for him and God is there for him. So lift your head my son to where your help comes from.” Here’s a few lyrics from the song that illustrated what the Christian rapper said: When life cuts so deep Try and remember You are not alone We’ve all been there Scars come with livin’ You are not alone We’ve all been there So lift your head, lift your head Lift your head to where your help comes from Yeah,…
