Watch The Emotional Moment She Meets Her Daughter, 50 Years After She ‘Died.'

Fifty years ago, a woman gave birth to a baby girl at the Homer G. Phillips hospital in St. Louis. Moments later, the doctors informed the woman that her baby had died, leaving the woman a lifetime of emotional baggage.

Then, thanks to the Internet and a few sleuthing grandchildren, something incredible happened - you're going to be shocked when you find out how this mother could possibly be reunited with her dead child.

As it turned out, the baby girl, named Melanie, hadn't actually died. Due to a horrifying mix-up at the hospital, Melanie was adopted to another family. Though the passed time means that it will be difficult to hold the hospital accountable for this egregious error, one thing is for sure - we're happy that this mother and daughter were able to find one another again.
