SHIRLEY -

Facebook helped a Long Island woman reconnect with the man who found her when she was abandoned as a baby.

Bob Halstead saw Susan Mote for the first time on Wednesday since 1968.

Halstead was 16-years-old when he found Mote as a baby on the side of the road in Bridgeport, Conn.

Susan was eventually adopted and grew up in Shirley. She is a nurse with three kids of her own.

Susan found Bob on Facebook, and says she hopes to now find her birth parents.
