An 81-year-old woman recently shared a story of how she discovered her 103-year-old birth mother was still alive after spending 61 years searching for her. As reported by LadBible, Eileen Macken grew up in an orphanage in Dublin and had spent more than six decades looking for her birth family. The search began when Macken was just 19 years old. In order to track down her family, Macken appeared on Joe Duffy’s Liveline radio show last year. “I was very upset that I was still on this planet, not having even one relative,” Macken said during the radio show. But just a few months after the show, Macken has managed to track her birth mother with some from help from a gynecologist, reported Mirror.
