that La-Sonya Mitchell-Clark requested records that were made available recently by the Ohio Department of Health. She learned her mother's name is Francine Simmons. She looked her up on Facebook and saw that she worked at InfoCision, the teleservices company where she works.
She knew of an employee named Francine. She reached out, and the next day, got the long-awaited phone call.
"I said, 'I think I'm your daughter," Mitchell-Clark said.
Simmons said she always wanted to connect with the daughter she gave up as a 15-year-old mother, but didn't know how.
"I'm still in shock," Simmons said. "It's amazing."
