Mother - Daughter Reunion
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) - One-hundred-year-old Minka Disbrow
says her reunion with the daughter she bore after being raped as a
teenager was an answer to prayer.
Disbrow had let a pastor adopt the baby, and she didn't see her
daughter for the next 77 years.
She recalls praying in 2006, "Lord, if you would just let me
see her, I promise you I will never bother her."
A short time later, her daughter's son located Disbrow in
California and phoned from Alabama.
The 77-year-old daughter's name was now Ruth Lee. After being
raised by the pastor and his wife, she had gone on to marry and
have six children including astronaut Mark Lee, a veteran of four
space flights who has orbited the Earth 517 times.
Mother and daughter have had several reunions in the last few
years, allowing Disbrow to connect with a family she didn't know
