Claire Culwell knew her mother had given her up for adoption at birth, but she didn’t know all the circumstances surrounding her birth—until she was twenty-one.
It was then that she finally met Tonya, her birth mother. Claire gave her a card which read, “Thank you for choosing life for me.” Without warning, her mother burst into tears. That was when the truth came out. Claire found out what had happened before she was born, and it changed her life forever.
