Adriana and her husband, Leandro, had known they’d both been abandoned by their birth mothers at a very young age. Adriana, 39, hadn’t seen her mother since she was 1, and Leandro learned at 8 that the woman he thought was his mother was, in fact, his stepmother.

The two got together ten years ago, after Adriana moved back to her hometown in the wake of a failed marriage, and had a child together; neither of them, however, gave up the quest to find their birth mothers, and last month Adriana reached out to Radio Globo’s “The Time Is Now”. On air, Adriana’s mother disclosed that she’d also had a son whom she’d left—Leandro.
