(WHO) A 19-year-old Iowa woman is meeting her birth mother for the first time thanks to a photo she posted online.
Hannah Stouffer of Urbandale posted a photo asking for information on her birth mother earlier this week.
Three days and 53,000 re-tweets later, she got a hold of her mother. It turns out her mother still lives in Des Moines. They've been texting back and forth for days.
Stouffer says she needed some time to prepare for meeting her mother in person..
"I'm as ready as I'm going to be. I'm nervous. I`m scared. Every time I think about it I just want to cry. I just can`t believe it`s happening already. I've waited so long and it`s finally happening," Stouffer says.
