Need to get a person's cell phone number. It's probably an iPhone.

First things first: I'm not a stalker and I won't do anything illegal. I've found the person who is almost certainly my birthmother. I need her cell phone number. I believe it's an iPhone. I also have an iPhone, for what it's worth.
Please note: this question is not about whether it's a good idea to contact this person. Nor is it about whether I should contact her via an alternate method.

It's not on Facebook or LinkedIn. Free directory sites like switchboard.com give an old, now disconnected landline, even though she remains at the address associated with that number. She may, like me, have abandoned landlines in favor of using her cell exclusively.
I've paid to get basic info from sites like Intelius and Radaris. They have only the landline. Only her defunct landline appears in so-called celll phone directories I've found online. I know her credit reports and utility bills would contain her most recent phone number(s), but I have no legal way to get them, and I'm not asking for them. I don't know anyone who knows her phone number, or that has any in person way of getting it.
Are there library-held databases that could help? Little-known websites? iPhone apps? (I've found none.)
