Teen mom puts daughter up for adoption – reunited with her 27 years later

A Tampa woman reunites with the daughter she gave up for adoption 27 years ago. Inside the emotional moment mother and daughter see each other.

Beth Cole was 19 years old and a student at Taylor University, Indiana when she became pregnant. After giving birth to her daughter Rebecca Hook on October 3, 1993, she was faced with two choices.

Cole had to raise her daughter as a single teen parent or put her up for adoption. She chose to put Hook up for adoption.

While speaking to reporters, Cole said her only option has always been to put her child up for adoption because it seems to her to be a win-win situation. She describes doing so as a joy she would give another family.

After giving Hook up for adoption, Cole said goodbye to her. Her only contact with her precious daughter is a school photo she receives every year on Hook’s birthday.

The loving mother cherished each of those photos. Trying to hold back her tears, Cole said she has never regretted the decision to put Hook up for adoption. She more:

“I always know I’ve done the right thing, but sometimes the right thing is the really hard thing to do.”

Meanwhile, Hook has grown up and has a child of his own. In January 2020, she felt a strong pull to find her biological mother. So she started searching the internet for help in tracking her mother through birth records. After finding her birth certificate, the next step was to find Cole.

It didn’t take long when Hook discovered her biological mother was living in Florida. The discovery overwhelmed her. Once Hook contacted Cole, the latter was also shocked.

The mother and daughter started communicating via text messages and video calls. They agree to meet under any circumstances.

In July 2020, Cole flew to Michigan to meet Hook. The mother-daughter duo spent that weekend hugging, laughing, and bonding.

Cole describes their first meeting and their time together as fun. She also said it was easy and it was as if they had always known each other. Hook agrees to her mother’s sentiments; she speak:

“It’s crazy how it happened so naturally and it feels like we’ve just known each other all our lives.”

After their time together, Cole and her family had to fly back to Florida. However, they did not do so without planning another reunion. Afterwards, Hook would meet Cole’s parents. The second reunion will also allow four generations of their family to stay in one room.

Hook discovers she has three more siblings, who are also very fortunate to have met her and her children. She is also satisfied and says she now has more people to love and more families to enjoy.

Cole has been blessed by her reconnection with her daughter. She described the 27 years she had to wait until her reunion with Hook was worth the wait. She more:

“Now what my family looks like today is the reward of a beautiful 27-year-old daughter. It’s been a huge leap from there to now.”
