REDDING, Calif. -- A Utah mom was reunited Thursday with a son she gave up for adoption more than 30 years ago. The reunion happened in Redding, Calif., where he lives.

For Terri Fuller and Rustin Hawver the reunion was long awaited. They found each other in January on, of all places, the social-networking site MySpace.

"I was on there e-mailing him, ‘Yeah, I wanna talk to you!' Gave him my phone number, and I think I called him the next day. And it's just been a roller coaster of emotions," Fuller said.

Hawver added, "It brings a bit of closure to my life. There's a lot of questions that still need to be answered. … This chapter is starting, and another chapter is yet to begin."

Fuller brought Hawver lots of Utah memorabilia. The two look forward to getting to know each other again.
