The Catholic News Agency reports that an Argentinian man, who was abandoned by his mother at birth, recently reunited with his mother through Facebook:
Mauricio, 23, was abandoned by his mother at birth. In an effort to find her, he created a Facebook group called “I’m searching for my mother.” Mauricio ended up finding her and the two were reunited.
Last Saturday afternoon, Mauricio spoke on the telephone with his mother for the first time.“My son,” she said, “it’s me, your mom. Don’t hate me. Forgive me. I always remembered you, I never forgot you.”
When Mauricio reunited with his mother in person he forgave her for abandoning him and thanked her for not aborting him, “Thank you for having the courage to bear me for seven months and for not having me aborted.”
