When Ohio’s laws permitted the release of original birth records to adoptees, La-Sonya Mitchell-Clark immediately made the request. She had been hoping to find her birth family for years, and with the support of her parents, she searched. Her surprise and excitement were extreme when, upon learning the name of her birth mother, she realized they were employed with the same company! The women set up a reunion, which included La-Sonya’s birth sisters as well. Living just a few miles from each other, both women are thrilled. They expect to remain in close contact with each other, and both families are excited to have even greater extended family now!
