Mom Tells Son on ‘Long Lost Family’ She Is ‘So Sorry’ for Placing Him for Adoption

The eyes have it. A man gets a letter from his biological mom — who was a teenager when she put him up for adoption — in Long Lost Family‘s Sunday, April 24, episode, as seen in Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek.

The TLC series’ new episode centers on Tom and Elaine, who placed their son up for adoption 30 years ago while they were high school sweethearts. The couple ended up staying together, getting married and having more kids, but they have been unable to track down their oldest child until now.

Their son, also named Tom, tearfully tells cohost Lisa Joyner that “it’s an odd feeling” to finally see a photo of his biological mom after all these years. He adds that his mother’s eyes remind him of his own.

He then reads a letter from his mom, who writes that she is “so sorry for all of it.”

Watch the emotional clip in the video above.

Long Lost Family airs on TLC Sundays at 10 p.m. ET.
