Woman Who Was Put Up For Adoption 38 Years Ago Discovers Her Birth Mother is Her Coworker
A 38-year-old woman from Youngstown, Ohio searching for her biological mom got the surprise of her life Monday when she learned her mother was a coworker. Last month, the Ohio Department of Health released birth records for those born between Jan. 1 1964 and Sept. 18, 1996. On Monday, La-Sonya Mitchell Clark got her records, including her mother’s name, in the mail. She immediately logged on to Facebook and did a search fro her mother's name, Francine Simmons. She received a phone call from Francine on Tuesday and it was then they learned they worked at the same company and live just six minutes away from each other. Francine says she gave birth to La-Sonya at 15 and had no choice but to give her up for adoption.
