An Ohio man was adopted when he was 5 months old. He always knew he was adopted and his parents have been supportive of finding and reuniting with his birth family. But his records were sealed. For 40 years Robert wondered.  And then records were opened and he found the name of his birth parents. That day Robert posted on Facebook all he knows about his birth family and asked for help in finding them. It was that same day that he got a positive response. This joyful video is proof that reunification is possible, and that it can be a very, very good thing.
