Birth Family Found Through Social Media

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman March 17, 2015

Mary has been searching and searching for her birth family for years. In her forties now, she began the search when she was just 18. After exhausting every avenue she could possibly think of, she followed the inspiration to use social media to find them. After thousands of shares, miraculously, Mary found them!

Sadly, her mother passed away before Mary found her through social media. But she has been reunited with her siblings. Mary’s brother remembers their mother being pregnant. And he remembers her coming home from the hospital without a baby.

This is a story of searching, finding, reunification, and love.
