'We see her anytime she is in town because we do live far but stay connected through text, calling, and social media,' Seabock said.
Reunions are emotional moments as one gets to meet the other person after a long time and they can no longer hide the emotions. This mother-daughter reunion is quite heart-warming as the mom meets her daughter 29 years after she placed her for adoption. The video was filmed in 2018 but was recently posted on TikTok, according to GoodMorningAmerica.
In the video, the mother, who is not named, can be seen walking to the door to meet her daughter Jamee and hugging her. Both can be seen in tears. Allie Seabock posted the video, she is one of four children the mother had after putting her first daughter up for adoption. The video was captioned, "It was the hardest decision she ever made.. she said not a day went by where she didn't think about her." It has more than 13.7 million views.
Allie said in a Q&A style video that they grew up not knowing that their mother had another baby. "We didn't find out until Jamee found my mom," said Allie. That's when she felt it was the best time to share the news with us." "We were all just super excited," she said about herself and her siblings.
Seabock's mom said that she was 19 when she became pregnant and that only her parents and two siblings knew about the pregnancy, she shared on TikTok. She added that she moved away to give birth to the child and then came home and went on with her life, never talking about the child she put up for adoption. However, she shared that she always worried about that child and hoped she would meet her one day.
"Did I have guilt? No. Did I worry? Daily," she said. "I was worried about if she was happy if she knew that she was loved, but I didn't feel guilty because I knew that she would have a better life than I could give her as a teenage, single mom."
Talking about the first time meeting Jamee, the mother said, "Seeing her and knowing that she is healthy, happy, has a family, is a relief. I was just relieved. It just took like the big weight off my shoulders knowing that she is happy and she knows how much she was loved."'
The mother was in "complete shock" when she first received a Facebook message in 2018 asking if she was Jamee's biological mother. "From day one I hoped that she would find me," the mom said. "I didn't want to find her because I wanted it to be her decision. I didn't want anything forced, but I prayed daily that she would find me."
Seabock said that Jamee is very much in touch with her family. "We see her anytime she is in town because we do live far but stay connected through text, calling, and social media," Seabock said.
