For years, Steve Flaig, a delivery-truck driver at a Lowe’s store here, had searched for his birth mother.He found her working the cash register at the front of the store.
For several months, he and Christine Tallady had known each other casually as co-workers. Last Friday, they met for the first time as mother and son.
“I have a complete family now, all my kids,” said Tallady, who has two younger children. “It’s a perfect time of year. It’s the best Christmas present ever.”
