Laura Brown and her mother

6 of 10
Mother-Daughter Reunion
When Laura Brown was just 6 years old, she said a relative told her that her mother was dead. Decades later, you can imagine Laura's surprise when, out of the blue, a woman called to say her mother was alive and well. That call happened just a week before Laura and her mother Joanne reunited on The Oprah Show in 1994. "She looks beautiful," Laura said. "I'm so glad to see her."

During this heartfelt show, Laura also reconnected with her siblings, Daniel and Diane, whom she hadn't seen since she was 4 years old.
