29-year-old Abbey Donohue of Bettendorf, Iowa was given up for adoption when she was born. (--Bettendorf is 170 miles east of Des Moines.)
--She never felt the urge to search for her birth family, but she found them anyway . . . on FACEBOOK.
--Abbey met Paula O'Brien at a party four years ago . . . and people said that they looked so similar, they could be sisters. So Paula and Abbey became friends on Facebook.
--Last week, Paula posted a link to a blog one of her relatives wrote, and explained in a status update how her brother had a baby years ago, and gave it up for adoption.
--Abbey saw the status . . . read the story . . . and saw that the baby in the blog had the SAME birth date she did. And after a little bit of investigation, she found out that Paula was actually her biological AUNT.
--Abbey says she's going to meet her biological mom this week, and plans to connect with the rest of her biological family too.
