Adopted teen meets birth mother with help from social media

URBANDALE, Iowa — Last Sunday, an Urbandale teen posted a photo on Facebook asking for information on her birth mother. This weekend, they met for the first time.

Nineteen years ago, Nicole Reinier left her daughter Hannah Stouffer a gift. “I thought they were beautiful, and I wanted her to have a soft blanket,” said Nicole.

Growing up, this blanket was as close as Hannah could get to her birth mother. “I was praying and praying and praying, ‘Please let me find my mom,’” said Hannah.

This blanket and a Facebook photo started it all. “I had to bite the bullet and email this stranger, and I’m like, ‘Do you know this girl?’” said Nicole.

When Nicole told Hannah about the blanket, Hannah knew. “Holy cow! It`s her!” said Hannah.
