When 17-year-old Darla Allgood found out she was pregnant, her life changed in an instant. "I was scared, frightened, immature," she recounts of learning the life-altering news.
Knowing that termination was not an option, Darla know that she was going to be faced with the most difficult decision of her life. When she finally gave birth, she knew it was time to say goodbye to the son she would never be able to raise.
From the moment Darla discovered she was pregnant, she knew raising the baby herself just wasn't in the cards. She wasn't meant to be a mother – at least not this early in her life. So, after coming to a heartbreaking decision, Darla announced she was giving her baby up for adoption.
After hours of pushing, crying and sweating, Darla gave birth to a healthy baby boy. He would surely make a wonderful son to his adoptive family!
Even though she wasn't keeping the boy for herself, Darla couldn't part ways though without a proper goodbye. She begged the nurse on duty, Danella Walters, to bring the sweet newborn boy back into her room.
"I want to tell him I love him, I can't provide for him, but this is the best thing for him."
Danella knew this risky decision could possibly cost her her job, but without hesitation, she brought the baby boy back to Darla and placed him in her arms. She had no idea this seemingly small gesture would trace back to her more than 20 years later...
Life continued and Darla eventually reconnected with her son. But when he announced that he was getting married, the woman to whom he planned on wedding left both Darla and Danella in complete shock. Who knew their paths would cross again more than two decades after that emotional night?
This incredible coincidence reunited long lost strangers through what could only be described as a miracle!
