Woman Looking For Her Biological Mom Finds Out They Worked Together For 2 Years
Jenny Thomas was shocked when she realized she recognized the woman in the photograph.
A woman who spent 15 years looking for her biological mother was stunned when she discovered they had worked alongside each other for two years.
Jenny Thomas, from Rochester, New York, tracked down her mom with the help of TLC's "Long Lost Family." When she was presented a photograph of the woman, Nita Valdez, she said: "Oh my God, I know her!"
"I always had that in the back of my mind, ‘is that my mother? Is she looking at me because she recognizes me?’" she said. "All I knew about my parents was that my mother was white, my father was black.”
Thomas signed up for TLC’s show, which helped tracked down her mom.
She was stunned to learn that she had actually worked with her biological mother at a hospital in Rochester. They had met 10 years prior and worked alongside each other for two years - Thomas as a patient care technician and Valdez as a patient transporter.
“I initially was in complete shock because I didn't expect to see a face I worked with,” she said.
Watch "Long Lost Family Sunday" at 10 p.m. ET on TLC to see the moment they were reunited and to learn more about their story.
