A woman in Eastern China was so stunned when she met her son’s bride during the couple’s wedding day – it turns out the bride was the woman’s long-lost daughter.
Reportedly, the couple’s wedding was held in Suzhou, Jiangsu province and when the mother saw her son’s bride, she recognized a birthmark on the bride’s hand. Because the mark was similar to this mother’s long-lost daughter, she mustered the courage to ask the bride’s parents if the girl was adopted.
Even though the parents were quite taken aback with the question, they revealed that the bride was, in fact, adopted. They found her on a roadside more than 20 years ago. The groom’s mother then explained that she lost her daughter in the same time period. She looked for her child but she was unable to find her.
The wedding would have been called off at this point, since brother and sister could not be married. But then the mother explained that the groom, her son, was adopted – after years searching in vain for her daughter, she decided to adopt a child.
Everyone was relieved and the wedding pushed through. What made it even better was the pictures of the bride crying and hugging her long-lost biological mother.
She described meeting her mother as “happier than the wedding day itself.”
It wasn’t clear how the bride got lost when she was a child or whether the groom knew he was adopted.
