Meeting Again

After decades apart, mother and son are finally meeting again.

Gary Thiemann was adopted when he was very young and grew up in a loving home. Over the years, he never really wondered about his biological mother, Mary Ann Rut, but he was never far from his mother’s thoughts.

When she was only 14, Rut went to Omaha to give birth to her son Gary. That was the last time she saw him, until now.

In May of this year, mother and son met at Thiemann’s home in Shreveport, Louisiana.

“We all hugged and cried. Then we started talking and kept talking and talking. All of a sudden it was midnight,” said Karen McCain, Thiemann’s half sister.
