Washington, Feb 3: In a rare and extraordinary reunion, a woman in her late 90s met her daughter after a long gap of 82 years.

Pierce -- now a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother was forced to give up her 6-month-old daughter in 1933 as she was just 14 at the time.

She gave birth to a little girl in a Utica hospital.

."It seems like it's unbelievable," Morrell's birth mother, said Lena Pierce.

Pierce was forced to give up her 6-month-old in 1933 after state officials concluded she was too young to raise the child, according to another of Pierce's daughters, Millie Hawk.

Morrell, whose adoptive parents died when she was in her 20s, was raised an only child in Long Island, New York.
