According to various reports, adoptee David Correy, age 26,was hoping that singing on reality TV show, The X Factor would help his birth mother find him - and that's exactly what happened. When Luciene Lima watched a recent episode of the show as it aired in Brazil, she thought she recognized the baby pictures of Correy. She just had a feeling that he was hers. Lima had Correy when she was 14 and placed him for adoption. Local media stations helped her find contact information for Correy. So far all information is matching up, including the adoption timeline. They have yet to do a DNA test. Reports state that Correy is very excited about finding his birth mother.
We have seen other fantastic adoption search and reunions over the years. One of my favorites is the young lady that discovered that she was royalty in Africa. Other wild adoptee reunion stories include that of rapper DMC - finding out he was adopted as an adult and then going on to find his birth family. Other celebrity adoption reunions include Oprah discovering that the had a sister and Olympians Toby Dawson and Resse Hoffa.
Serious question - Do you think the fame - even reality stardom - adds to the complication of an adoption reunion? Is there anyway around this for the family?
Just for fun question - Who do you wish you were related to?
