Once upon a time, my mother was young, single, fun-loving and serving as a WAVE in the US Navy in Washington, D.C. Some of that fun turned out to be an unexpected pregnancy. There is quite the story to go with this but for now, I'll just show some pictures of a happy family reunion. My mom put the baby up for adoption and 73 years later, he found us. This is a miracle for sure and it is basically thanks to Ancestry.com DNA. We were able to meet together in San Diego this past June. Here are some pictures. Story to be added later.
