A Mother’s Story: Reunion After Adoption

In 1955, 17-year-old Patty Lurvey gave birth to a son in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, who was immediately put up for adoption. In 2007, at age 52, he contacted Patty with a request to reconnect. This talk details all of Patty’s experiences during this journey while discussing the countless ways that it has significantly impacted her life.
