Triple M Hot Breakfast executive producer Jay Mueller has told the incredible story of how he reconnected with his biological son after more than twenty years.
Calvin Daniels was born when Jay and his high-school partner were just 16-years-old, with the young parents deciding to put their son up for adoption.
“I was a 16-year-old idiot. I was totally incapable of raising a child or being a father or doing anything. I was completely confidant we were doing the right thing,” Jay said on Triple M.
In December last year Jay reached out to Calvin via email to see if he would be interested in meeting.
“I knew about Calvin obviously, and Tracy his mum and I had stayed in touch over the years. I knew his name and I knew a little bit about him,” Jay said.
“I thought ‘You know what. He’s getting to that point where he might have some questions’.”
Calvin says he felt a mix of emotions when he received the email.
“I was kind of excited. Kind of shocked. Kind of nervous,” Calvin said on Triple M.
“We decided, you know what, we’re going to just go for it, see what happens so we sent him an email back kind of saying ‘hey, we’re open to this and we’d like to have you as part of our family’.”
