Identical twins Molly Sinert and Emily Bushnell were separated at birth in South Korea and adopted by different families. Molly went on living in Florida while Emily in Pennsylvania. The siblings spent most of their lives totally unaware of each other’s existence and little information about their birth family.
But everything changes after Emily’s 11-year-old daughter, Isabel wanted to make a DNA test to explore her heritage.
Isabel said, “I wanted to do the DNA test because she was adopted. I wanted to find out if I had more family on her side.”
Meanwhile in Florida, Molly also decided she wanted to take a DNA test to find out more about her mother’s history. The database confirmed her relations with Emily.
“(The results said:) ‘You share 49.96% DNA with this person. We predict that she’s your daughter’. This is obviously not right because I’ve never gone into labor, I don’t have children.”
Shortly after, she figured out that she must be her sister. They contacted each other but decided not to have a video call until they met in person.
Even though Emily didn’t feel comfortable taking the test, but finding out about her twin makes everything so clear.
“Although I have family who loves me and has been wonderful, there was always a feeling of disconnection. Finding out that I had an identical twin sister just made everything so clear. It all makes sense.”
As the twins got to know each other, they discovered more and more similarities between themselves.
Emily added: “Our senior prom picture…we were both wearing a beaded dress with a strapless style and our hair was exactly the same.
Emily concluded by describing the reunion as ‘the happiest moment of her life’.
