For many, family is the most important thing in life. Having a parent and sibling who knows you inside and out, who will help you no matter what, and who always wants to see you live your best life is a primary source of comfort and inspiration around the world.
Unfortunately, however, there are millions of people who have not had the opportunity to meet one or all of their biological family members. And while having adoptive parents and siblings is quite an amazing thing, many wonder where they came from and what their blood family is like.
Could you imagine not knowing one of your family members for a decade or more of your life? That’s exactly what happened to these two girls, Audrey Doering and Gracie Rainsberry, but with a twist.
Audrey and Gracie were born in China and are identical twins. But the girls were separated at birth, both adopted by families in the United States – Audrey with her lovely family in Wisconsin and Gracie in Washington. But it wasn’t until the girls’ 10th birthday that they and their families learned of this fact. And all thanks to Audrey’s mother, Jennifer.
Jennifer was doing extensive research online in hopes of finding out more about her daughter’s story. It was then that she came across a photo of the two girls sitting next to each other. Jennifer, completely amazed, dug deeper to realize the truth. Then the two girls had the great opportunity to meet in real life. The moment is intensely heartwarming, full of tears of joy and love.
Check out the absolutely amazing footage of their reunion below and don’t forget to like and share this priceless moment with your beautiful family and friends.
