Abbey Donohoe and Paula O'Brien met several years ago at a party.
At the time they thought nothing of it despite the fact they do look somewhat alike.
Now they find out it’s because O'Brien is Donohoe's aunt. The woman found out completely by accident after an innocent Facebook post.
O'Brien put up a comment about how her older brother and his girlfriend had given up a baby for adoption. They also mentioned the child’s birth date of September 19th.
Donohoe read the post and began looking into other facts and information. It wasn’t long until they both realized they were family.
"I'm like September 19th, that's my birthday," Donohoe, 29, says. After comparing more information, the two confirmed Donohoe was the baby in question.
Donohoe told an Iowa radio station that she never searched for her birth family because she "was loved so much."
