Woman tracks down birth mom in a week using Facebook

A 36-year-old Pittsburgh woman tracked down her birth mother in a week after posting a photo of herself to Facebook asking for help.

As many who are searching for their birth parents have done, Nicholle Oliver posted a photo of herself holding a sign detailing the circumstances of her adoption and her birth mother’s name and age.

Within a few days, she had found not only her mother, but two sisters she had no idea existed, according to Metro UK.
