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.

12-Year-Old Hailed as Hero After Saving His Friends Life After Disturbing Snapchat Posts

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble

Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online. Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography. It’s a scary cyber world out there. But oddly enough, when one 12-year-old with a good heart and sharp instincts managed to use Snapchat to get his friend the help she needed in the nick of time, by responding quickly right when he noticed something was amiss. Yahoo News reports: Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.” Want daily pop culture news delivered to your inbox? for Yahoo’s newsletter. Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline. “I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’” Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had. “Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’” Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants…

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.

Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.
