(Video) Zella Jackson Price, 76, met her daughter, Melanie Diane Gilmore, in person for the first in 49 Years

OLIVETTE, MO (KTVI) – 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. But on Thursday, the mother and daughter were reunited — and 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.
Melanie arrived with her own daughter and son at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport from Oregon. That’s also where Melanie met her brother, Harvey, for the first time.
Their story begins at the old Homer G. Phillips Hospital in St. Louis. Shortly after delivering her baby, Zella Price was told the infant died. But Melanie was alive and for some unknown reason, she adopted by another family.
