Donna Pavey figured a reunion with the daughter she gave up for adoption wouldn’t happen until she made it to heaven. Incredibly, decades later, they managed to find each other.
In 1965, then 18-year-old Pavey was forced by her grandparents to give up her newborn daughter because they thought she was too young to have a child.
Pavey, now 70, never forgot about that baby girl, she told KVUE.
“Every day I’ve prayed for her, and her birthday would come and go,” she said. “I wanted her with me, and I prayed that she would have a good mother and father.”
