Mom meets daughter she thought had died at birth 50 years ago

A mother who was told her baby died 50 years ago was both shocked and elated when she met her full grown daughter who was adopted at birth by another family.

Happy reunion for mother and daughter.

For 76-year-old Zella Price of Missouri, USA, it was tears of joy after she was reunited with her daughter 50 years after she was told that the baby died at birth.

Price described her shock and happiness after learning that her daughter was alive.

50 years ago, Price gave birth to a baby girl at the Homer G. Phillips Hospital in St. Louis, and she was told that her baby died. However, the baby was alive and was adopted by another family.

Her daughter, Melanie Diane Gilmore, was looking for her mother for a long time, and with the help of her children, she traced down her birth mother, and the two recently met for the first time.

Price said that she is hurt by the years of separation, but is grateful for this second chance.

Gilmore who lost her hearing at 3 years old, because of a childhood illness communicated her excitement using sign language.

The emotional reunion between the mother and daughter was captured on video as Gilmore and her children met her mother and her family members. Sadly, her father passed away a few years ago.

The family said that they will launch an investigation into what happened at the hospital when their daughter was born.
