According to the Des Moines Register, Stouffer, who was beyond the moon with excitement and anticipation, says she and Reneir, who also lives in Des Moines, met over the weekend at a coffee shop. The meeting was fueled by overwhelming emotions and unmeasured surprise at how similar they both are in looks, mannerisms, and speech patterns. “We both love to sing, and she told me how picky of an eater she is,” said Stouffer. “She doesn’t like her food to touch. My food can’t touch either. I was like, Wow, that’s really crazy.”
Reneir gave birth to Stouffer at the tender age of 15 then went on to have another daughter a few years later. Stouffer met her sister and a step-sister at the touching reunion.
Stouffer, who finally no longer has to wonder where her features come from, is ecstatic about her newfound family, telling the Des Moines Register, “I don’t feel that empty feeling anymore.”
Reneir, who also met Stouffer’s adoptive parents, realized that she had made the right decision when she gave her child up with the hopes that her daughter could have a better life.
Now Renier and Stouffer are indeed a family, and the birth Mom has changed her Facebook photo to reflect her newfound joy with a caption that reads:
‘Today has been an amazing day! I was reunited with a piece of my heart that I never thought I’d find again! I feel like a brand new person! My heart is on the mend and I’m overflowing with joy!!!” she added. ‘Thank GOD for her wonderful parents! Hannah is magnificent!”
