Adopted daughter finds her birth family

This woman found she was adopted later in life and searched for her birth family. After birth records were opened in Jan 2018 in Missouri she was able to get her birth certificate, her parents are my parents. I visited her and went through our history at the history museum in St Louis. I caught this pic of her moment alone, taking it all in, with all that history behind her.
