Her name is Minka Disbrow and she was just 16 years old when something unthinkable befell her. But 77 years later, this day in 1929 conjures a wonderful smile on her face.
Minka didn’t just rediscover her daughter, but she was able to meet grandchildren and great-grandchildren that she never even knew existed. Each more successful than the next. To her great surprise, one of them was even an astronaut: Marc Lee has orbited around the Earth 517 times. If you are just as touched by this story as I am, then share it with all your loved ones.
