Could you imagine your best friend turning out to be your long lost brother or sister? For two women in Sarasota, Florida, this turned out to be a reality. Born in Seoul, Korea, Holly and Megan (which are their American names) were adopted individually as young children, and both moved to America with their adopted families. Each of them had faint memories of having a sister, but neither knew details of where the other was at. After all, their sister could have been adopted by a family anywhere in the world, so that made the task of finding one another nearly impossible.
Although Holly and Megan were never in contact with one another, they both ended up getting into the health care field, one living in Virginia and the other living in the neighboring state of Kentucky. And in an amazing twist of fate, both of their locations changed when each decided to make career moves to Sarasota, Florida. Making this story even more miraculous, both took jobs at the same exact hospital where they worked the same shift on the very same floor. The two ended up becoming quick friends due to their close proximity at work, and even went to lunch together regularly. Through this friendship they learned about their similarities, including their shared Korean last name.
After they learned they were from the same place and had the same last name, they decided to have a DNA test done to learn whether or not they were related. It turned out that they were in fact sisters, and ever since then they have been inseparable! Both women cry with emotion during interviews where they explain how lucky they feel to have found their sister. They are now working on building a deeper relationship and have a great time with one another, especially knowing they were re-united against all odds after 40 years apart.
