A 21-year-old woman, Lydia Macnair, has employed the power of social media to find her biological mother and siblings.
Lydia had taken to Facebook and Twitter to launch search for her biological family, and revealed that she was adopted by a white family in 2001 who moved her to another city.
She posted photos of herself as a baby and other information she knows about her birth mom and family. According to her, she has tried every means possible to find them, but it was all futile, so she decided to try social media before getting a private investigator.
“pls shareI have been searching for my biological mom/family and have had no luck. A simple RT could help me find them. I was born September 15,2001(21 yrs old) The only info I have is my biological moms name is Demonica and she lives in the north Raleigh area. Thread below
I was adopted through Amazing Grace Adoptions in Raleigh and moved to Asheville/Fairview North Carolina. I know I have at least 3/4 older siblings.
I know this a long shot but i’ve exhausted all other options at this point. Next will be a private investigator but wanted to take a chance w twitter. A simple like or retweet could help.”
Her post quickly went viral online and fortunately, her immediate elder sister saw the post and contacted her on Facebook.
She eventually reconnected with her biological mother and her other siblings – two sisters and two brothers.
