This is such a heart-warming moment. A birth mother is surprised by a reunion with her daughter after giving her up for adoption 20 years earlier.

Estelitta Murg – known as Leah – was celebrating her 42nd birthday on January 28 with a meal surrounded by family and friends unaware of the incredible shock awaiting her.While sitting in CJ Maggies restaurant in Buckhannon, West Virginia, USA, Leah’s sister Hope Cunningham leads her niece Natalie Rodgers, 20, and her adopted mom Anita up the stairs quietly. As soon as Leah spots Natalie, she gasps before bursting into uncontrollable tears. She then throws her arms around her daughter in a loving embrace. It was as if no time has passed.

“Leah had no idea what we had planned so she was in total shock when Natalie appeared." Hope said. “They didn’t skip a beat. She fit right in, like she should have been there her whole life.”

Leah was 22 when she gave Natalie up for adoption. She already had two other daughters and was going through a tough divorce, so she didn’t think she could take care of a third child. Wanting a better life for the baby, she gave her up. Natalie discovered the details from her adopted mother Anita last summer, when she told her how much she liked the name Dakota, which was her birth given name. The girl then tracked her biological mother through Facebook and reached out. The two had only seen each other on photos that they sent to one another, so this was the first time they got to hug properly.
