For 36 years, Jenny Thomas, 40, of Rochester New York, has known she was adopted. For the past 15-years, Thomas, has been in search of finding her biological mother, yet, with no luck. The only clue she had to go on was that her mother had lived in the same hometown as her. After reading about a show on TLC, called Long Lost Family, that reunites foster and adopted children with their biological parents she decided to apply- and was accepted. In the clip for the show, the host hands Thomas a picture of her birth mother and immediately, she recognizes exactly who she is.
“Oh my- , I know her,” Jenny shockingly replies. “I was just in shock.” As it turned out, “Thomas and her mother worked together at a Rochester hospital for two years, and neither of them had any idea.” Not only that but they interacted very closely together, Thomas being a patient care technician, and her mother, a patient transporter.
According to an interview by the NY Post, Thomas recalls, “I had looked in so many faces for so many years, [thinking] ‘Could that be her? Is she looking at me because she knows me?’ All the while I had looked at the woman who once knew me as her daughter.”
