(Pleasant Grove, UT) — A mom from Pleasant Grove and her daughter are reunited after 18 years and they have Facebook to thank. Then-19-year-old Andrea Corry gave birth to Shelly Wheelwright and felt she wasn’t ready to be a mother. Adoption rules said she couldn’t contact her daughter until she was 18. Corry posted photos on Facebook and it didn’t take long before the family connection was made. It turns out the daughter was also searching for her biological mother.
