Birthmother finds daughter on MySpace

Filed under: Adoption

It's been said that Web 2.0 social networking sites like MySpace and Friendster bring people together, but this story really brings the point across.

Apparently, a Wisconsin woman who placed her baby daughter for adoption in 1985 found her child on MySpace just a few short weeks ago. The both of them had been corresponding with an adoption agency as a go-between, but they were never able to meet face-to-face. The story goes that the mother (Diana Brown) typed in her daughter's name (Ashley Gardner) on MySpace and was able to see her picture. They soon touched base via e-mail, and then finally met a few weeks later.

In addition, it appears that Ms. Gardner's parents approve of the reunion, and Ms. Brown seems to have the right attitude by saying that she was not trying to replace anyone in her life, but just there to love her.

Small world, isn't it?
