The week before Mother’s Day, Australian DJ Ryan Jon posted a video of himself sharing his feelings about his birth mother and saying that he would love to thank her in person, if meeting him wouldn’t be disruptive to her current life. The video went viral. It’s been viewed more than 100 million times and over 10,000 people have messaged Jon.
He writes, “My mother’s name is Julie and I have received emails from 78 different Julies. That’s 78 separate times I’ve seen that name in my inbox, 78 times my heart’s skipped a beat, and 78 times a cold sweat has suddenly appeared on my forehead. I’ve also been asked a lot of questions. Here’s my answers to the most common ones.”
