When two ten-year-old twin sisters meet for the first time, they cry tears of pleasure.
After meeting live on a US TV broadcast, Gracie Rainsberry and Audrey Doering hugged each other fiercely.
The girls didn’t know one other until Audrey’s mother came discovered a photo of them as babies in December.
It was a childhood snapshot of the two of them posing with their Chinese foster mother.
Audrey’s mother was able to track down her daughter’s twin sister, and the two kids spoke for the first time on FaceTime.
Earlier this week, the girls met in person for the first time on Good Morning America.
Audrey, who grew up approximately 1,500 miles away in Wausau, Wisconsin, and Gracie, who lives in Richland, Washington, fell into each other’s arms.
The two sisters, both of whom wear spectacles, had even planned to dress alike.
‘It felt like there was someone missing’ before Audrey met her identical sister, Audrey said. ‘It’s now finished,’ she added.
Even though the event was’very overwhelming,’ Gracie said she felt excited and pleased.
Jennifer Doering, Audrey’s mother, wrapped her hands around Gracie’s face and asked, ‘Can I just touch you?’
Audrey had inexplicably requested a sibling for Christmas this year.
As a result, her mother set out to find a copy of her ‘finding ad,’ which is a photograph that is published in Chinese newspapers when a baby is placed in an orphanage.
She was taken aback when she discovered a photograph of two babies sitting on their Chinese foster mother’s knees.
The Doerings subsequently discovered that the second baby in the image was born about the same time as Audrey and had the same congenital heart defect.
They contacted the Rainsberrys and informed their daughter of the situation.
Audrey, who has three elder brothers, was first skeptical of her parents’ claims.
‘She’s me,’ she added after talking on FaceTime with Gracie, who has two brothers and a sister.
Both chicken Alfredo and mac ‘n’ cheese are favorites of the twins.
