Waiting for 77 Years

A remarkable story about loss, life, and finding family almost eight decades later.

From MSNBC...
For most of her 100 years, Minka Disbrow tried to find out what became of the precious baby girl she gave up for adoption after being raped as a teen. 
She hoped, but never imagined, she'd see her Betty Jane again. 
The cruel act of violence bore in Disbrow an enduring love for the child. She kept a black and white photograph of the baby bundled in blankets and tucked inside a basket. 
It was the last she saw of the girl — until the phone rang in her California apartment in 2006 with the voice of an Alabama man and a story she could have only dreamed.
