Neither knew they were searching for each other. Carrie Leach, 22, was placed for adoption at birth by her mother, Kelly. Kelly Gallant always wanted what was best for her baby girl, and at the time of her birth, that meant placing her with a loving, supportive family. Twenty two years later Carrie was engaged to be married and desperately wanted her birth mother to be present at her wedding. And so she searched. Just two days after she posted a photo on Facebook, the two were reunited with each other. This news video shows phone footage of the actual reunion.
