It’s beautiful how destiny works to make people find each other at the right time.

High School Sweethearts


Michele Newman and David Lindgren were high school sweethearts, but they made the difficult decision to break up after one year.

Michele’s Secret


Just after the breakup, Michele discovered that she was pregnant with David’s child. After considering all her options, she decided to not tell David that she was carrying his child.

Giving Him Up


Michele also decided to give the baby up for adoption. Nine months later, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy and only got to hold him for a short time before he was given to his new parents.

The baby was named Martin Schmidt. He grew up with loving adoptive parents, but he also learned that he was adopted. For a long time, it didn’t bother him until he was 36 years old and he learned that he was going to become a father.

Finding His Parents


Martin started looking for his birth parents by contacting the adoption agency that had handled his case, and luckily, they were able to connect him to his mother who admitted that David had no idea that Martin existed.
