BROTHERS, SEPARATED BY ADOPTIONS, BROUGHT TOGETHER dentist Albuquerque
Two brothers, Timothy Wayne Gold and Dave Smith, sons of the same woman, never met each other until Timothy’s wife’s aunt did extensive research on adoptions in Albuquerque. She found out that Timothy’s birth mother was Gloria Conner, who had had two sons born between marriage, divorce and remarriage to Jerry Conner.
Smith, going through family records after the deaths of his adoptive parents, learned his birth mother’s name, and discovered the research done by Timothy’s aunt. That led him to Gloria’s brother, Craig Neuenburg. Neuenberg held a family reunion in 2013 to welcome the two men into the family. Gloria had died in 1976, so she never got to see her two grown sons.
Both Smith and Gold are grateful that their mother gave them up to loving families, who raised them up, and gave them stable lives.
