La-Sonya Mitchell-Clark had been looking for her biological mother for years before finally receiving her birth records in the mail. Little did she know, she was in for an incredible surprise.
When searching for Francine Simmons on Facebook, Mitchell-Clark discovered that the woman believed to be her real mom works at InfoCision, the same company that she does!

Thanks to the social media platform, she was able to reach out to Simmons, who called her the very next day. "I said, 'Is this Ms. Francine?' She said, 'Yes.' I said, 'I think I'm your daughter,'" Mitchell-Clark recalls of their first conversation.
And it turns out the pair live only six minutes apart! "I got pregnant when I was 14. I had her when I was 15. I was put in a home, a girls home. Had her. Got to hold her. Didn't get to name her, but I named her myself in my heart all these years," Simmons tells news station 'WYTV.'
Upon their reunion, Mitchell-Clark also found out that she has three half-sisters. "It's just amazing that all this time we're thinking about her and trying to find her and she was trying to find us, too," Maisha Cummings, one of her siblings, tells reporters.
