“So I am throwing out a Hail Mary. I’m interested in finding my birth mother. She was 13 when she had me in Carmichael, California so she should be around the age of 44-45,” David started his Facebook post. “Her name was Tonya Anderson. I’m not sure on the spelling of her name. But anyways, I know this is a long shot but hey, all my friends help me out. Share if you want. Thank you all, I love you people.”

Immediately, David’s followers started offering to share the post. More than anything, fans just wanted to make David’s wish come true.

Several of David’s followers suggested that he try DNA testing websites. There have been countless stories of others connecting with long-lost family members this way.

My 600-Lb Life fans hope that the search is fruitful

In the comments, David revealed that he did find a distant cousin from 23 and Me. Sadly, he didn’t find any information about his birth mother. Genetic testing companies like 23 and Me can only help people search for family members if the other family members happened to upload their information too.

Although David hasn’t found much yet, his fans remain hopeful that he will find answers soon.

The TLC star also revealed that reaching out to the adoption agency probably wouldn’t help, since he had a closed adoption.
