In 1928, a 16 year old girl named Minka Disbrow was on a picnic in the woods when she and her friends were approached by three strange men.
Separated from her friends, Minka was faced with an act that would change her life forever.
Minka didn’t tell anyone about her attack, but she couldn’t ignore her growing belly and changing body. After speaking with her mother, she knew she was pregnant.
She gave birth in secret and put the baby up for adoption. For years, she wrote letters, trying to get updates on her daughter Betty Jane.

Nearly 80 years later, a judge released the adoption records to her long-lost daughter and finally, mother and child could meet.
