When April Becker Antoniou was a child, her parents had a fight and they split up. This led to April’s mom taking her away and she never got see her dad again. April lived her life blaming both her parents but as time went by she forgave them both.
“I know that they had a disagreement and my mom thought it was best to leave. I blame them both for making equally poor decisions. After 15 or 20 years I decided I was not going to be angry about it.” She told the Wichita Eagles Hurst Laviana. It was then that she embarked on the task of looking for her father, Scott Roberts Becker.
Every time she would type his name in the search tab, she would always get negative results. One day in 2009 she typed in a phrase that turned her luck around. ‘Scott Robert Becker looking for April’, those were the words that put her long search into a stop.
She found out that there was a website named after her, AprilBecker.com. On the website she found a letter that read “Dear April, when you read this, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m your dad and I would really like to talk to you.”
She immediately emailed the address and that was the moment she discovered that her dad had actually been looking for her for years! He had even two hired private detectives that cost him$40,000 but they had not helped him much, so he decided to create the website and after 30 years, father and daughter reunited and he even had the chance to meet his grandchildren.
