Birth Mother And Son Reunite After 51 Years

After years of pursuing dead-ends, Kenny Franklin had pretty much given up on being able to reunite with his birth mother. He finally just said, “God, you’re going to have to have a miracle here.”

Kenny Franklin was adopted by a loving family and grew up in a happy, stable home. He never felt hurt or abandoned by his birth mother – but he was curious about who she was and what she was like. Not wanting to hurt his mother’s feelings, he waited until after she passed away before beginning a search for his birth parents.

Anne Burroughs has lived a full, happy life. She raised two sons and has worked as a nurse and nursing professor.

Over the years, she has prayed for him, wondering what had become of the baby she was never allowed to see or touch.

And then a miracle happened.
