Mother and 23-year-old daughter meet for the first time.

For most, it was just another day at Six Flags over Texas, but for Jennifer Stuart the day was special.

"I am meeting my daughter who's 23 for the first time," she explained. "I placed her for adoption at the Gladney Center here 23 years ago on June 11."

"I was very young. I was 14 years old so I was just a baby myself," she added.

Finally, the moment she'd been dreaming about arrived.

An embrace of mother and child, for what feels like an eternity but could never be long enough.

Afterwards Jennifer and her daughter Christina made up for lost times, riding on rollercoasters,
sharing laughs and tender moments as they walked through Six Flags hand in hand.

"It was amazing really. I didn't really believe it at first but then we started talking and just connected and it was really cool," said Christina.
