Watch This Man’s Touching Message to the Birth Mother He Never Met
A viral video featuring a man’s emotional message of gratitude to his birth mother has just gone viral all over the world. Here’s why…
The video of Australian radio host Ryan Jon quickly went viral after he uploaded it to Facebook a few weeks ago.
Jon explains in the introspective message that he’s never met his birth mom, Julie. He then goes on to pour out his heart in thanking her for his life, because it would have been easy for her to end it before he was born.
“When she got pregnant unexpectedly she didn’t believe that she had the time or maturity to be a great mom,” Jon said. “She wanted to make sure that her child had every opportunity available.”
He went on to explain that he wasn’t trying to get political.
“I’m really happy to exist,” he said.
“My parents who I now call mom and dad, they were told they couldn’t be parents and now they are and so they’re really happy as well.”
While he’s heard stories of mothers who give their babies up for adoption and are saddled with regret as a result, he offered an encouraging message for those who find themselves in that very circumstance: “From my point of view it’s the total opposite,” Jon said. “You’ve given someone the gift of life. You’ve sacrificed your body, your life.”
He ended the video by evoking tears all over the world; closing by thanking Julie for her decision. Though he said he hopes that his video would go viral enough for her to see it, Jon said he isn’t looking for his birth mom to respond and simply wants her to know that he’s grateful.
“She gave me my life and I feel like the least I can do is let her live hers,” he said through tears. “I just wanted to say thank you for everything.”
