Child abandoned at birth reunites with mother via Facebook

.- In an amazing series of events, a young man who was abandoned at birth used a Facebook group to find his biological mother.  After then were reunited, the young man thanked her for resisting the temptation to have an abortion.

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.”

The next day, they met in the town of Cordoba, Argentina. The emotional encounter was full of hugs and silence. Later, Mauricio told the newspaper, El Diario Clarín, "I feel complete. I have never experienced this serenity of my soul. Finally, I can finish my story.”
 
"The only thing I could say to her was that everything was fine and that I forgave her," he added.
 
During their talk, the young man explained, his mother told him that she didn’t have any other children. She said that his father was "a mistake" and that she had gone on to reconstruct her life with another person. Without resentment, he replied in gratitude: "Thank you for having the courage to bear me for seven months and for not having me aborted."

Now, says Mauricio, the Facebook group will be renamed, "I found her."
