A pair of twins who were separated at birth in China and then adopted by two different American families who lived hundreds of miles apart were reunited in person today on Good Morning America’s live stream.
Audrey Dearing, 10, of Wisconsin, and Gracie Rainsberry, 10, of Washington State, were in tears as they embraced for the first time this morning after being separated shortly after birth.
Audrey told ABC News that she requested a sister for Christmas this year. She had no idea what would happen next when she discovered she had an identical twin who had also been adopted by an American family. Gracie expressed her excitement and happiness shortly after the meeting. “It’s extremely overwhelming,” she admitted.
