There are a lot of things you can do with Facebook: make new friends, re-connect with old acquaintances, meet your match, and even find your biological parents.

That last one seems to be a bit out there, but it’s something that Jenessa Simons of Salt Lake City actually did through Facebook.

Utah Facebook LikeOf course, there’s no guarantee it’ll work, and you might even elicit some bogus responses from online pranksters, but what Jenessa did just goes to show Facebook’s seemingly boundless reach.

What Jenessa did was take a picture of herself beside a sign, where she wrote down information about her birth and about her parents. She then posted it on Facebook and asked people to Like and Share her post. Jenessa published her photo at the end of 2012, and things just took off from there.

As a result of her photo being shared over 100,000 times, Jenesse has been contacted by a woman who claims to be her biological mother. Here’s to hoping that it’s her actual mom.
