Son given up for adoption over 30 years ago meets his mother

Posted: Updated:

Spencer Williams was given up for adoption at 5 months old. His loving adoptive parents were honest with him from the beginning.

But as he grew, "Started wondering, who my mom was, who my dad was and the whole,'Why did they give me up?'" he said. "I wanted those questions answered."

And the big questions:

"Why wasn't I good enough? Why wasn't I worth it?"

The search was on.

"I went through the phone book," he said. "I called every number I could. I ended up on Ancestry.com and they had a message board."

He posted his plea.  

Time passed. He spent time in the Army and got married. But his mother was not to be found.

Unbeknownst to Williams, she was looking for him as well.
