Duncan: Michelle Miller has our final story. It began years ago with two desperate parents who hoped to one day see their baby again.
It was a simple letter with a simple request.
Is it possible that in ten years that you could meet us on this bridge? It was so heartfelt. We thought, oh, my, these birth parents went through a difficult time.
The request to meet came from Chinese parents who had abandoned their second-born in a market. They violated China's one-child policy.
That child, Kati, was adopted by Michigan couple Ken and Ruth Pohler. The Pohlers never forgot that note. When Kati turned ten in 2005, they sent a messenger to that bridge. The birth father was there. By sheer chance, a Chinese TV crew captured him on tape.
Holding a sign. The name on the sign was the name on the note.
Filmmaker Changfu Chang was so compelled by the story, he made a documentary about it. The story became famous in China. But back in the U.S., the Pohlers remained silent.
When I was little, I asked my mom, whose tummy did I come from, because I realized, you know, that I didn't come from her tummy.
This is really something quite big for her to deal with at this time in her life.
They didn't tell Kati until she was 20.
They told my brothers about it. So I was, kind of, the only one left in the dark.
How did that make you feel?
I was definitely, like, upset for a little while. But, yeah, whether or not that was the best way, I don't know, but there wasn't a guide book for how to approach this subject.
This summer Kati finally got a chance to meet her birth parents. A week after her 22nd birthday. A reunion made all the more overwhelming by the barriers of both language and culture.
Are they real to you now?
They are. They're very real to me now.
Still, a family, once lost, has been found. Michelle Miller, CBS News, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
