16-year-old Minka Disbrow was having a picnic in the woods with her two friends when the group was approached by three older men and then assaulted and raped.
Minka didn't speak of the attack, and did not understand what was happening to her body until her mother took notice and explained to her that she was pregnant after having asked if she'd "known any boys."
Her daughter was born in secret at a young women's home and given up for adoption. Nearly 80 years later, Minka still had never laid eyes on her baby girl, Betty Jane. It was at that same time that a judge was releasing the sealed adoption records to Betty Jane, who was 77.
