A beautiful trio are waiting to find each other, discussing the almost unfathomable way their mother chose to let them go.
Janet Barnicoat, less than a day old, was found in a paper bag near a trash can in 1981, with her umbilical cord still intact.
A similar thing happened to Dean Hundorf, who was also found as an infant with the umbilical cord still attached in 1986, and Julie Hutchison, who was found a year later.

They were all adopted by loving parents, and although their abandonment circumstances were uncanny similar, tthe trio he doesn’t know any of the others exist.
This mother … opened up about her controversial but heartbreaking story.
The truth is, babies are abandoned every day. So other than they’re stuck and all adopted, do they have anything else in common?

Barnicoat was the first to go on a mission to learn more about her biological family. Having had a baby, she was bewildered about how a mother could leave her newborn baby in such a state. She expressed:
“When you have your own child, you know, you understand what genuine, natural love is. And I can’t understand how she couldn’t have that for me.”
Through a saliva sample sent to Ancenstry.com, she discovered she had an older brother, Dean Hundorf, who, when they met in 2014, said it felt as if they had known each other forever.

They felt the same way when they found their half-sister Julie Hutchison through the help of genetic genealogist CeCe Moore. Speaking of which they all met about three decades after being born, Barnicoat speak:
“There is a connection. It’s like we’ve never been apart.”
Now, there is only one piece of the soul puzzle left. Who was their biological mother, and why did she do what she did?

CONFIGURATION START CODE
ABC News 20/20, with the help of genetic genealogist CeCe Moore, finally found this mother, who opened up about her controversial but heartbreaking story.
The biological mother of these three half-siblings, Joann Hauser, explained that when she was born Barnicoat, 22 years old, already had two sons, Welfare, and terrified.

She did not believe that she could raise another child with the feeling that the new born child would have a better life if raised by someone else. With no safe haven throughout the 1980s, she felt as though she had little choice about how to give up her child.
Half a decade later, however, Hauser is pregnant again, this time with Hutchison, and feels just like she once was. She made sure to put the newborn in plain sight to ensure that it would be rescued.
Making peace with the past
A year later, she gave birth to Hundorf and with the same mindset, she placed him on the porch. Jacket recall:
“We ask her if she loves us, and she said, ‘Oh my God, I think about you every day. I love you every day. ‘”
Barnicoat said she forgave her biological son mom. Regardless of the affection they had for Hauser, however, it was nothing but a blessing for the three of them to have found each other, two more to love.
