Reunited after 15 Years of Being Apart

Mother and son are reunited after 15 years of being apart. And what a sweet, tearful reunion it was.

Marietta Sandoval was just 14 years old when she gave birth to her son, Jesus–now named Chase by his adoptive parents. Sandoval was forced to relinquish her rights to her son. Never knowing if she would see him again, she wrote a poignant letter to him explaining what happened and how much she loves him.

“I will always love you. I tried my hardest to get you back, but I failed. I’ll miss you. I hope you look for me later. Don’t think that I didn’t want you cause I really do, but I want you to be good for your new family.”

The two were finally reunited when Chase’s adoptive mom went searching for Chase’s birth mother. The two got to know each other, and a meeting was set.
