DNA Test Brings Together Long-Lost Sisters In Modesto


A DNA TEST LEADS TO AN EMOTIONAL REUNION. A SISTER — SISTERS MEET IN PERSON FOR THE FIRST TIME. HELLO. IT IS A HUG THE SISTERS NEVER THOUGHT WOULD HAPPEN. I HAD HOPED AND DREAMED AND PRAYED THAT SUNDAY THIS WOULD COME, BUT I DIDN’T THINK IT WOULD. BECAUSE WHEN YOU’RE ADOPTED, EVEN THOUGH IT CAN BE A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE, THERE IS ALWAYS A HOLE IN YOUR HEART BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS. THAT IS GRANNY. Reporter: FOR THEM IT BEGAN JUST SEVERAL WEEKS AGO WHEN AT THE AGE OF 70 LORI TOOK A DNA TEST AND DISCOVERED HER FAMILY. 23 IN MAY CAME BACK AND THERE WERE EIGHT CLOSE RELATIVE PATCHES ON IT. Reporter: WOULD’VE BEEN SHARE THE SAME LAST NAME AS THE WOMAN — ONE OF THEM SHARED THE SAME MISTAKE AS THE ONE WHO WAS IDENTIFIED AS HER MOTHER. SHE BELIEVED IT WAS HER YOUNGER SISTER IN MODESTO. I GOT AN ADDRESS AND I THOUGHT, OKAY, I WILL WRITE A LETTER AND WHATEVER HAPPENS, HAPPENS. Reporter: WHAT HAPPENED NEXT WITH HER SISTER COULD PREDICT. I WAS AMAZED BECAUSE IT WAS IN FOSTER HOMES, I DIDN’T HAVE A MOTHER, OR DAUGHTER. THEY SAID OKAY, I WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY KNOW IT ARRIVED AND I GET NO RESPONSE, AT LEAST YOU KNOW IT GOT THERE. Reporter: HER SISTER RESPONDED IN LESS THAN AN HOUR OF RECEIVING IT. IT WAS SUCH A SHOCK TO ME. I HAD HEARD FROM A COUSIN THAT MY MOTHER WAS BABYSITTING FOR HER AND MY MOTHER WAS VERY NERVOUS THAT DAY AND SO SHE ASKED HER WHY AND SHE SAID I GAVE UP A DAUGHTER FOR ADOPTION 18 YEARS AGO AND I’M AFRAID SHE WILL TRY TO FIND ME. Reporter: THEIR MOTHER DIED BACK IN 1992 AFTER A BETTER — BATTLE WITH POLAR DISORDER AND LUNG CANCER. SHE TOOK INTO HER GRAY. I DIDN’T HAVE ANY HOPES OF FINDING THE PERSON. Reporter: AFTER 66 YEARS, — OKAY, OPENNESS. SOMETHING SPECIAL. Reporter: THEY FOUND EACH OTHER. — IT IS A HEART THAT SAYS BIG SISTER, LITTLE SISTER. Reporter: THEY PUT THE MISSING PIECES OF THE PUZZLE BACK TOGETHER. I WILL BE BACK. THIS IS JUST A BEGINNING. DNA IS DOING SOME AMAZING
