Adopted Man Travels 2000 Miles To Meet Birth Mom For First Time

This is the emotional moment a man who was adopted completed a more than 2,000-mile journey to meet his birth mom, bursting into tears as he was finally able to be held in her arms. Jordan Bock, who is from New York City, finally got to embrace his mother, Martha, who he had been searching for and long dreamt about meeting. The pair were reunited in El Poblado, Antioquia, Colombia, with Jordan being born in an orphanage in Medellin before moving to the United States when he was three months old. Having moved with his adopted family to Woodstock, New York, in 1995, Jordan, 24, was determined to find his mother ever since his supportive family told him he was adopted. Using a search agency called Colombia Tu Pais, Jordan was able to track down Martha, who did not wish to reveal her second name, and the pair met on April 27, accompanied by Jordan's half-brother, Cristian. As Martha stepped out of the car, Jordan said he "felt like the world stopped". But once the pair began to hug, no words were needed - Cristian then joined in for the family embrace. The meeting was captured in footage that Jordan hopes will encourage others who were adopted to take a leap of faith to discover where they are from. Throughout the whole process, Jordan said, his adopted family were 100 percent supportive in his journey, and since the meeting, his family in the United States have booked a holiday to meet his entire birth family later this year.
