For months, Steve Flaig often greeted Christine Tallady at work. What a shock it was to find out Tallady was his birth mother.
The 22 your old always knew he was adopted. Early in his life, he wanted to find his first mother. When he turned 18, he gained access to his adoption records. Four years of searching brought them to the realization that he was spelling his birth mother sore name wrong. He began his search over.
When he corrected the error, he found a possibility living near where he worked. He couldn’t believe it when he found out that they both work for Lowe’s. He knew who she was, but took two months to get the nerve to approach her. He went to the adoption agency with his find. Employee made the call for him.
He has since sat down with his birth mother — a conversation went on for 2 1/2 hours. The reunion continues each time they see each other at work.
