WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A mother and son have been reunited thanks to Facebook.Alma Olson put her baby up for adoption 40 years ago.

Her son, Larry Johnson says he had a wonderful childhood. Unfortunately, he buried both of his parents in 2011. He never gave up searching for his biological mom and he was able to share Mother's Day with her via Skype.

"I almost fell out the chair, when I saw this come up. I thought oh my gosh," Olson said." Oh my gosh! Lord what are you doing here? Is it time for me finally to see my son."

It took Johnson 20 years to find his birth mother. When he got old enough, he opened his birth records and was able to get her name. He actually found her on her birthday. Olson says she's delighted that they are able to bond and have a relationship. She plans to fly to Arizona in a few weeks and watch her son get married.
