In the United States, two friends, after years of dating, discovered that they were sisters separated as children. This is reported by the publication People.
Cassandr Madison and JuliTinetti met in 2013 while working at a restaurant in New Haven, Connecticut. The women immediately noticed that they had a lot in common. They were very similar and had done the same tattoos before they met. Both were born in the Dominican Republic and raised in foster families in the United States.
Madison and Tinetti compared their adoption papers, but the information in them did not match. Many years later, Madison was able to find her biological father using the 23andMe genetic test. To meet him, she traveled to the Dominican Republic. The man said that he had seven children, but due to poverty, he had to give two girls, including her, for adoption.
Madison suspected that the second adopted child was Tinetti, and persuaded her to have a genetic test. He confirmed that they were sisters, and the discrepancy in the adoption documents, which prevented them from learning about it earlier, was most likely a mistake.
Earlier it was reported that two friends from Hawaii, who met 60 years ago, turned out to be half brothers. One of them found out about this when he was looking for relatives using the genetic test Ancestry.com.
