Facebook mission to find Minneapolis birth mother

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

A Maple Grove, Minn. woman is hoping a Facebook photo can help find her birth mother.

THE POST

“My name is Kim. My birth date is 5-21-1970. I was born at Fairview Hospital in Minneapolis, MN. I am searching for my birth mother. PLEASE share this post. Any information can be sent to kimssearch521@gmail.com. Thank you!”

THE INSPIRATION

Kim Lees has been trying to find her birth mother for the past 10 years. She’s now turning to Facebook in her search, inspired by a story of a mother-daughter reunion made possible by social media.

Kim's original post (http://on.fb.me/1vRi9jt) has been shared nearly 2,000 times.

“I am so overwhelmed by the number of people who have taken the time out to help me by sharing,” Lees told Fox 9. “I am amazed by all the good people who are out there.”
