It was just another day in Southern Indiana for Dave Hickman. The year was 1955, and he was out hunting with his grandfather.

The 14-year-old heard a noise — a cooing of sorts — and set out to discover the source. To his surprise, it was coming from a from baby girl. She was soaking wet, wrapped only in a towel — her lips, blue.

“My grandfather said we have to do something real quick — we have to get help for the baby,” said Hickman.

They brought her to a hospital, and she was adopted a week later.

But that wasn’t enough.

Hickman would spend the next 58 years trying to track down the little girl, and with a little help from a retired sheriff, he tracked down the woman now known as Mary Ellen Suey.

The two spoke on the phone, but Suey knew she wanted to meet Hickman in person.

“It was almost like I┬áhad known Dave for years,” she said.
