Mother Gave Up Her Baby After Giving Birth, 18 Years Later She Could Not Believe What She Saw
One of the worst things a mother can go through is losing a child. Letting go of someone you love is never easy, but having them come back to your life is an experience no words could ever explain. This is what happened to our next story.
Tammy Oswalt is a single mother from Florida. She has three children but sadly she had to let go of one of them as she was experiencing a financial turmoil that was quickly sinking her into bankruptcy. Just at the brink of homelessness, this single mom had to endure the most difficult decision in her life. She had to have her newborn son adopted for him to survive.
Oswalt had to give her son; she named Bruce, to someone who could give him a life which he deserves. She broke up with her husband due to his problem with substance abuse. Back then, Oswalt wasn’t aware that she was carrying a child in her. After the break-up she was left with raising her two daughters on her own, and it wasn’t panning out right for them.
When she gave birth to “Bruce” now named Dylan Rich she was barely able to make ends meet.
In an interview Oswalt said: “A mom doesn’t give up her child like a sack of potatoes. All I could give him was love and sometimes that’s not enough. I had to make the decision to give him up because I did love him.” Then she was reduced to tears.
After giving away her son Oswalt was not out of the woods yet as she suffered depression from what she had done.
“I tried to commit suicide,” Oswalt recounted: “The emotional guilt and loss overwhelmed me.”
Little did she know that one of her daughters, Hewett, was keeping in touch with Dylan; and they prepared a surprise that would change her life. Four days after her birthday Oswalt was invited by her daughter for dinner.
When Oswalt saw that her daughter was holding a camera, she became suspicious. Hewett then said “Meet your son, Dylan.” Oswalt was shocked. All she could utter was “Oh my God, I love you. You’re beautiful.”
After the meeting, they decided that it was time to build the relationship that was long overdue.
“I feel complete now. Everything that I ever wanted, I now have. I’ve gotten what matters and that’s family” says Oswalt.
