William Frederick Hunter

Yesterday, a fellow MamaPop writer and a wonderful woman, HerBadMother posted an incredible story that I felt compelled to spread around:


Catherine has a brother she never met. Her mother only saw him once through a hospital window 45 years ago, but she never stopped thinking about him or loving him, yet she was too scared to look for him. Now she hopes that Catherine and her sister will. 

His birth name was William Frederick Hunter, and he was born in 1963 at Grace Hospital in Vancouver. She believes one or both of his parents were professors at the University of British Columbia.

Because I live in the Pacific Northwest and have a decent number of friends in BC, I know there’s a chance, albeit a long shot, that you know someone who knows someone that fits this description, and that he wants to know his birth family.  Perhaps he has only been waiting to be found. Perhaps, if enough people post this story, the brother Catherine never met will discover he has a birth mother who has never passed a day since she gave him up that she didn’t think of him with love and hope for his well being. That, if he wants to know them, he has another family waiting for him.

Be forewarned: that post I linked to is a tearjerker.

    What a cool story! My husband’s friend a few years ago FOUND OUt he had a long lost brother! Turned out his mom had a baby years before she had him! Now they are in contact and get together for family events!
