Imagine living most of your life believing that you are an only child and have no brothers or sisters and then, suddenly, learning about a truly amazing family bond that completely changes your perception of the life you have led up to that point. day. The same thing happened to these two women, who for most of their lives never met, until they found out they were actually identical twins!
Molly Sinert and Emily Bushnell are both 36-year-old women of South Korean origin who have lived in the United States of America all their lives; the first was adopted by a family from Florida, Emily instead was raised in Philadelphia; Neither knew she had a twin sister until Emily decided to pressurize her adoptive mother to find out a little more about her Korean roots: who were her natural family? Why was she adopted?
Emily's daughter, who found that a woman of Emily's age lived in the state of Florida and that she was also born in South Korea and then adopted, who looked exactly like her identical twins, has helped in the search. After a fateful DNA test, Molly had the confirmation that she didn't expect and Emily was the person she had been looking for for some time: they were both twin sisters!
Emily, incredulous, recounted this extraordinary and touching family discovery: "A hole in my heart was filled immediately. Even though I have family members who love and adore me and were absolutely wonderful, there was always a feeling of disconnection. Finding out that I have a twin sister made it all very clear. It all makes sense now!"
After having spoken exclusively through social media, the two sisters finally wanted to meet for their 36th birthday; the emotion they both felt was really very, very strong: "This is the happiest moment of my life, I can honestly say. They have robbed me of the last 36 years of a life that I could have had with my twin sister, but at the same time, I'm very grateful and excited for what lies ahead,” Emily revealed.
Although the identical twins live in two different cities, now they have a lot to share, to remember, to experience together, looking towards a future that is certainly different, but no less exciting. Both Molly and Emily know that having found a twin sister means not only not having that strange feeling every day that the void in their hearts has been filled, but it also means having someone you can always count on, even if they are miles away in distance.
What an incredible story!
