An Albuquerque man has found his birth family using the power of social media.

Jon Goetz has been searching for his brother and mother for 3.5 years, but after nothing but road blocks, his adoptive sister told him to post a picture on Facebook holding a poster with all the information he knew about his biological family.
     
After just one day and more than 50,000 shares on Facebook, his full brother contacted him and they met that night. Now, Goetz has also met some of his father's family.
 
"I've been waiting for this moment for 21 years," Goetz said. "This is everything to me."

Goetz says he and his brother will continue to search for their mother.
