"My Little Valentine" spans decades to tell a true Kansas story

By  | 

TOPEKA (WIBW) -- "My Little Valentine" is the true story of a woman’s life-long desire to find her birth mother. Wanda was born on Valentine’s Day 1925 at a home for unwed mothers called The Willows Maternity Sanitarium in Kansas City where she was given up for adoption.

She was adopted and raised by a loving Kansas farm family. Wanda loved her parents and family dearly, but she always wanted to know who she was and why she was given up for adoption. (Watch the video of Ralph's interview with Mr. Parr from Friday's 4:30 red couch show.)

Knowing how badly his mother wanted to learn about her background, KelLee began a secret search of his own in 1991 to find information about his birth grandmother. With what he believes was divine intervention and some extremely good luck, KelLee found his mother’s birth mother.

Join him on the journey in the search as he uncovers the secrets of the woman who had to promise at the age of 17 to never look for her baby girl. Discover what life was like in rural Kansas in the 1920s for two young women with very different destinies and the baby girl they shared.
