Boy Finds Mom After Decades
It’s every mother’s worst nightmare: her child disappears into thin air. Here’s the true story of one such case…
Two brothers are at an Indian train station. They become separated in the crowd. The younger brother, Saroo, doesn’t know how to explain where he lives or what his last name is. He is put in an orphanage and adopted by an Australian couple. His mother mourns. Twenty-five years pass. Saroo grows up. But love for mother is strong. So strong that the boy, now a man, uses modern technology to jog his memory. He Googles what he thinks is the place where he is from. Soon he has narrowed down his search to a country, a town, a street. He goes there and asks if anyone remembers…they do. They return with a woman. His mother. Her son.
