Watch: M’sian Reunites With Birth Family 20 Years Later, After Mother Sends Him Birthday Wishes On FB
If you wake up every day with a roof over your head and a family that loves you, you’re luckier than most people. Even during the worst days, a lot of us go to bed with ease knowing our family has our back no matter what.
Muhd Hidahyat Jamaludin or affectionately known as Dodiey Hidahyat is one such person who is lucky enough to receive the love from two families. This wasn’t an easy task for him however as it took overcoming his fears and insecurities.
Hidahyat was adopted when he was just six-months-old and was raised in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur for the past 20 years. On August 8, he was reunited with his birth family at his elder sister’s wedding. He shared a clip on Twitter of the reunion which has since garnered over eight thousand retweets!

“At that moment, I knew she was my mother. I said to myself this is the moment and so I went to the wedding, the rest just happened.”
Speaking to World of Buzz, Hidayat said he knew he was adopted ever since he was six-years-old. At that point, he didn’t really give it a second thought as his adopted family took care of him like their own kid.
At the age of 17, he started to wonder about his birth family but he wasn’t ready to face them. On his 19th birthday last year, he received a wish from a “lady” via Facebook which led him to notice that this “lady” wished him every single year ever since he was on Facebook without fail.
After some light research, he found that the lady posts a lot about her family and that is where he noticed that one of her sons has similar features with him which confirmed his suspicion that she was indeed his birth mother.
He asked her some questions to which she also confirmed, however, Hidahyat still wasn’t ready to meet them. Then, they invited him to his sister’s wedding and the rest is history.
Thanks to Hidahyat for showing us the unconditional love a family can have. Here’s to him being happy with both his families!
