BETTENDORF, IA (KWQC)-- More than 100,000 children are adopted every year, in the United States. Some of them end up searching for their biological parents and some don't. But what if you find your birth family by accident?
That's exactly what happened to 29-year-old Abbey Donohoe of Bettendorf Iowa after one of her friends posted a message on Facebook about a baby given up for adoption 29 years ago.
"It was just a surreal," said Donohoe. "Did I really just accidentally find my birth family?"
Paula O'Brien was the woman who wrote the post.
O'Brien has been friends with Donohoe for four years. But neither knew they were actually related."My family had prayed for this for years," O'Brien said. "For 29 years we dreamed of this day and it's here."
