“No one knows this, but when I walked in the door, she said, ‘You’re that girl?!’” Chenoweth recalled.

“She had seen me on ‘The Tonight Show’ ten years prior. Her uncle had said, ‘Lynn, there’s a girl on there that acts just like you,’” she added. “She’s incredible. An incredible person. And when I met her she said, ‘Can you ever forgive me?’ And I said, ‘Forgive you? You gave me life. And my parents Junie and Jerry gave me a life. The chance at a life.’ And I’m so grateful for her.”
