Lisa saw a suspicious text message on her husband, David’s phone, when he wanted Lisa to answer his mother’s call, while he was in the shower. It was a normal thing for them to answer each other’s phones, while they were busy with something else.

As she was putting the phone down, a message popped.

“Please don’t tell Lisa yet. We’ll do it together.”

As she saw the message, she was sure that David was cheating on her. She was devastated. She sat on the bed, listened her husband having a shower while humming a song.

She was with David since high school, and he was the only person she dated, as she was the only person David had dated.

After David left the shower, they went to the living room to watch a movie.

“Honey, I’m going to bed,” Lisa said, as she felt that she can’t stand without saying anything. “You can finish the movie, though, before coming up.”

Then she saw that David’s phone was there in the bedroom, and snooped through her husband’s phone. As there were no secret meeting plans or love words, they were only talking about Lisa. About her work, and what she would like to do in her free time.

She then sent a message, “Come over tomorrow, my place, at 2 p.m. Lisa will be at work.”

The next day, as she was trying to focus on her work from her laptop, she couldn’t. At 2 p.m., the doorbell got ranged. Her heart skipped a beat. As she opened the door, she saw a woman, who was familiar but she couldn’t put her to a place.

“Are you Lisa?” she asked. “I’m Gloria.”

As she was in panic, she couldn’t understand why her husband was cheating on her with an older woman.

“I’m your mother, Lisa,” the woman said.

Lisa knew that she was adopted, but she was so confused. She only saw her mother through an old picture, where she was young.

“Tell me everything,” Lisa said, as she welcomed her into the house.

“You were born out of love, Lisa,” Gloria said. “But circumstances forced me to give you up for adoption. Your father and I were only fifteen. We were children going to have a baby. My father refused for me to have you. He was worried about how it would reflect on him.”

“My mother tried to let me keep you, but in the end, he took you away in the middle of the night. He took you to a hospital and left you there. You must have been four days old.”

She only had one picture in her blanket, on the behind these were written, “Gloria Manson, 1987.”

As they were talking over a hot chocolate and toast, David came home. He saw Lisa and Gloria.

“Oh honey,” David said, “I didn’t know how to tell you, Lisa. Gloria contacted me months ago, and I’ve been helping her reconnect with you.”

“David’s wanted to tell you about me for a while. I kept telling him not to,” Gloria continued. “I needed to get my bearings first. Up until last night, he wanted to tell you.”

“Why did you both wait so long?” Lisa asked.

“I was afraid, Lisa,” Gloria said. “How do you tell your child that you were barely a teenager when you had her and that her grandfather took her away?”

“There was a photo of you,” Lisa said, “It was left with me. My mother showed it to me on my sixteenth birthday, but I didn’t know how to do about it.”

“I’ve watched you from a distance,” Gloria revealed.

“My father recently gave me a few details about you, and through the hospital, I discovered who you were.”

“I understand if you’re angry or confused,” Gloria continued, “But I needed you to know the truth. I’m here if you want to get to know me.”

All the anger Lisa felt was gone after those words. As she was feeling tricked, she always wanted her biological mother to be a part of her life.

She hugged to her mother, and then to her husband. This was enough answer for Gloria and David to understand.
