Tim Green travels to San Antonio, TX to meet Wavie Evans, 52, who is looking for the son he lost 30 years ago. Now a father of seven, Wavie yearns to complete his family by reconnecting with his son, Tyrone, whom his then-girlfriend gave up for adoption three decades ago. His current wife and his family have tried to help, but to no avail. As Tyrone's adoption was private, the "Find My Family" team has only one piece of information - a birthdate. They begin the incredibly challenging task of contacting thousands of men born on that date in California. Will "Find My Family" be able to track down Tyrone?
Then "Find My Family" heads to Santa Clarita, CA to meet with Maria Finn, a 43-year-old woman who wishes to reconnect with her birth mother. Maria was raised in a loving environment and couldn't be happier with her adoptive family. She wants to make sure her birth mother knows that her life has been a blessed one and, more importantly, that she made the right decision giving up Maria for adoption. Maria's adoptive mother, Rose Belle, also wants to thank Maria's birth mother for the incredible gift she was given. Maria has attempted her own search for years, but has no strong leads. She only has one tangible piece of information - a St. Jude medal her birth mother left with her that she has worn daily for years. The "Find My Family" team has little to go on except the medal, Maria's birth name, Jude Genovese, and some generic family information left behind in her adoption file.
