21-years-ago Crystie Simpson made the hardest decision she ever had to make. At just 15-years-old, Crystie was forced to decide whether to keep her baby and raise him on her own, or give him up for adoption knowing he would be provided for far better than she could as she was just a child herself. Crystie chose to put her son up for adoption.
Crystie always knew that the decision she made was in the best interest of her son, but for 21 years she missed him like crazy and dreamed of the day that the two may meet again. Turns out, her son missed her as well.
In May of 2013, her son found her on Facebook, letting her know that he never forgot about his birth mother. They made plans to reunite at last!
While awaiting her son to arrive at the airport, it was clear that Crystie was extremely nervous. Her hands trembled and she waited anxiously to see her baby boy that she has not held in 21 years. Finally, he arrived and the two embraced in a hug. A hug filled with emotions that many of us will never truly understand.
Such an amazing moment! It looks like her son’s family just tripled in size!
