"Facebook Family" Goes On Anderson Cooper

Updated:

 

About a month ago we introduced you to Paula O'Brien and Abbey Donohoe, the Davenport friends who discovered they are actually related.
    
Paula figured out through a Facebook post that Abbey is her niece who was given up for adoption. 
     
Today Abbey and Paula went national with their unusual story. They were on Anderson Cooper Live the syndicated talk show that we air every morning at 11.

"It was more kind of a half joking that I was like well that's my birthday," Donohoe said on the show. "But I was born in 1983 is that what you meant? And she was like well it might be you. They said that we kind of look like each other."

The ladies received a nice prize.  The Anderson Cooper Show gave them a 5-day, all-inclusive trip to Mexico so they could spend some time bonding together as family.
