Teenage Sweethearts Get Married After Reuniting With Son Given Up For Adoption.

Martin Schmidt had known he was adopted ever since he was a little child. He had been raised by his amazing adoptive parents, William and Cynthia Schmidt, who never stopped him from reaching out to his biological parents, Michele Newman and Dave Lindgren. Still, Martin didn't push it. But when his wife, Carin, got pregnant, he felt the sudden urge to meet his biological parents. Never in his wildest dreams could he have predicted what would end up happening next.

Michele Newman was only 16 when she became pregnant. She was still in high school, and keeping the baby simply wasn't an option for her.

Michele had just broken up with Dave Lindgren, who was the baby's father. Given that the young Wisconsin teen had zero support from her family or the baby's father, she made the choice to put the baby up for adoption, and eventually, both teenage parents went on their way.

Michele felt that "there was never any real bitterness between us.” They had just been playing adult games at a very young age.

Michele felt that there wasn't any bad blood between them, but they had decided to split up nonetheless. “Dave was a good man with a good heart, and we were both doing things we shouldn’t have.” When the baby was born during a major blaze on a winter, he was immediately adopted by Cynthia and William Schmidt, who were beyond happy about becoming parents to a beautiful young boy.

Within a matter of days, the state got in touch with his biological mother, Michele.

Michele received a phone call that left her in tears, but these were good tears to say the least. She had been living in Hilo Hawaii for a while, working with a family services nonprofit organization that helped domestic violence victims. The second she got that call, she started crying. “I called my mom. Then I went back to work and told my boss ‘I’ve got to go home for the rest of the day,’” she recalled.
