An Olivette family is the subject of a story full of joy and mystery. Forty-nine years ago, a woman was told her daughter had died just after hours after being born. Just recently, the mother and daughter were reunited, both very much alive.

Zella Jackson Price, 76, met her daughter, Melanie Diane Gilmore, in person for the first time at Price’s home in Olivette.

“There’s nothing greater. There’s nothing greater than this. Nothing!” Price said. Earlier, Melanie arrived with her own daughter and son at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport from Oregon and that’s where Melanie met her brother, Harvey, also for the first time.

This story begins at the old Homer G. Phillips Hospital. Shortly after delivering her baby, Zella Price was told the infant died. But Melanie was alive and for some unknown reason, adopted by another family.

Zella Price is hurt by the years of separation, but thankful for this second chance. “(God) has given me everything the devil has taken from me,” Price said. “I’m getting it back. I’m getting my baby back.”

Gilmore lost her hearing at the age of three because a of childhood illnesses. This reunion is something she’s wanted for a long time. “I am just so happy…very excited,” she said.

Gilmore’s children knew about their mom’s wish. They used the Internet and a name to follow that Melanie apparently received from her adoptive parents. The kids eventually found Zella Price.

“COPYRIGHT @ 2015 MELIKA JACKSON For the past 49 years, my mother, Melanie Diane Gilmore (Jackson) has been suffering with the absence of a mother and my grandmother, Zella Jackson-Price, from the absence of her daughter. On November 25th, 1965 a beautiful, premature miracle was born in St. Louis, MO at Homer G. Phillips Hospital (the first hospital in St. Louis to bore African-American children). My grandmother bore a baby girl and was told that her daughter had died within the first five hours of being born due to her being premature, so my grandmother was never able to see her daughter. Unfortunately, the people affiliated with the birth of my grandmother’s child had underestimated my mother’s will to live and decided to perform an unlawful act which involved the kidnapping of a child. Someone unlawfully covered up a kidnapping for 49 years from a mother who loves her children dearly.
In August 2014, an attempt was made by Melanie’s children to begin the search of their grandmother, Zella Jackson-Price, by contacting her family members via Facebook message but there was not enough evidence to prove Zella had a daughter named Melanie so this search was discontinued until February 20th, 2015. On this day, one of Melanie’s daughters messaged Zella with questions regarding to having a daughter in 1965. Zella messaged back with questions, answers, and facts of birthing a baby girl.
In order to prove that Zella and Melanie were biologically related to one another, a dna test had to be performed. Melanie and Zella took a paternity test by swabbing each others mouths and sending it off to the DNA Diagnostic Center. A few days after the swab tests were sent to the center, the results came back. The results had stated that Zella Jackson-Price was the mother of Melanie Diane Gilmore (Jackson) and it was a 99.9997% match.
On March 8th, 2015 Melanie’s children decided to break the news to their mother by surprising her with the paternity results and an oovoo conversation with her biological mother and family. A video was posted on facebook, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=… to show her reaction to her children finding her mother. It would be greatly appreciated if you could donate to this cause and help reunite Melanie and her family.
Thank you,
Melanie’s Children”
