It was a psychological reunion nobody might’ve prepared themselves for.
Jimmy Lippert Thyden, a criminal defense lawyer living in Virginia, reunited with his biological mom Mar ía Ang élica Gonz ález more than 4 years after he stated she was informed he passed away quickly after his birth at a health center in Chile.
“It knocked the wind out of me, I was suffocated by the gravity of this moment,” Thyden informed The Associated Press of the reunion in an interview released onAug 28. “How do you hug someone in a way that makes up for 42 years of hugs?”
Thyden’s journey to discover his family members started previously this year after he found out of Chilean- born adoptees who had actually been reunited with their birth households with the aid of not-for-profit Nos Buscamos.
According to Thyden, who summarized his case file to the outlet, the company found that he was born too soon at a health center and positioned in an incubator. Shortly after his birth, his mom was released from the healthcare facility, however when she went back to get her child, Thyden stated she was informed he died which his body had actually been gotten rid of.
