FB status: Reunited! Birth mom found online

NEED TO KNOW
  • Thanks to social media, it only took Hannah Stouffer three days to find her birth mother
  • Stouffer: 'I wanted to scream'

"My name is Hannah. I was born April 12, 1995, at the Des Moines Hospital. My birth mom was 15 years old." That's what Hannah Stouffer posted on Facebook.

Just three days later, a woman contacted Stouffer, saying she knew her mother. Stouffer got in contact with her and the woman knew things that only her mother would know.

Stouffer tells CNN affiliate KCCI that she finally "won't go everyday wondering who I look like." Stouffer told KCCI she talked with her birth mother on the phone and exchanged text messages. 

Stouffer said she plans to meet her birth mom this weekend.
