God bless her and her son.
Sure is. Was hoping there were some Atlanta FReepers here who could tell us more about this case. Maybe we could find her son.
Wait...she’s 96. She says he wasn’t given up for adoption but she has t seen him in 10 years. Whhhhaaattt?
I don’t get it either that is why I’m wondering if there are any Atlanta FReepers here who know anything about this story??
That would be so good.
She must be suffering terribly, thinking that she may die before seeing him again.
Sounds like a lousy son.
What don’t you understand? Her adult son went missing 10 years ago.
Or a lousy Mom
Yes and she says he wasn’t put up for adoption. wtf does that mean? What don’t YOU understand?
He just went missin’
Anyone have a phone #? I’ll give him a shout.
There is a lot of back info missing from this piece of investigative journalism.
She’s explaining that her son was never given up for adoption. So he hasn’t been missing since a child, but went missing 10 years ago. Are you hard of reading?
If she is looking for her Son, where is the pic of lil Donny boy?
This is pure clap trap.
I have know idea what is going on, but this is pure clap trap.
A Donald L. Thomas, purportedly born December 24, 1955 (which might be an inaccurate date from a friend who just guessed), passed away in Atlanta in 2009:
Name: Donald L. Thomas
State of Issue: Georgia
Date of Birth: Saturday December 24, 1955
Date of Death: Saturday May 23, 2009
Est. Age at Death: 53 years, 4 months, 29 days
Last known residence:
ZIP Code: 30331
30 years ago the daughter married a divorced drunkard, child deserter and wife beater. (first wife) He continued drinking, beat the daughter regularly. One day he beat her so badly that he put her in the hospital.
The elderly lady begged her to leave him- and to make a long story short, the daughter told her to stay out of her life and from then on she was 'dead to her'.
That was 30 years ago- and they have not seen each other since. The daughter still lives with this monster in a city about 200 miles away.
True story. .
Thank you for the facts.
That is sad.
So if this is known, Why is some un named family member exploiting this?
Obviously, I don’t know whether this was this lady’s son or not. And if I were her, and heard of this particular person, I wouldn’t immediately assume that it was her Donald.
But it might well be worth someone looking into.
