Throughout her life, Susan Gervaise had always believed she was adopted. However, destiny had something surprising in store for her, and at the age of 53, the truth was unveiled. It came to light that her real family had never given up hope and had been diligently searching for her since 1969. The remarkable tale began when Susan was taken away by neighbors who had initially promised to take her to Disneyland alongside their own children. Little did her parents know that these neighbors had no intention of returning Susan to them.
Subsequently, the family moved to various countries, eventually settling in New Zealand. At the tender age of four, Susan was told she had been put up for adoption, and she carried this belief with her throughout her life. As she grew up, she achieved significant milestones, obtaining a degree, settling into a beautiful home, and exploring the world through her travels. It was only when she went to renew her passport that doubt began to creep in, as there were no adoption documents in her records.
Curiosity led Susan to start questioning her “family,” and the truth slowly unfolded before her. The revelation left her utterly astonished. Despite the shocking revelation, Susan decided to maintain a connection with her “adoptive parents,” accepting the past for what it was. A few months later, she embarked on a journey to find her biological parents and, to her amazement, discovered that they had never stopped searching for her during those long 53 years. While the past could not be altered, Susan found solace in knowing the love her real family had for her all along.
