Identical twin sisters separated at birth from South Korea found each other a few days to their 36th birthday.
Born in South Korea, Sinert was adopted by an American family and had little knowledge of her ancestry growing up in Florida. It was the same case for her identical twin, Emily Bushnell, in Philadelphia
The pair went through grade school, proms, graduations, marriage and childbirth all without knowing each other existed. That is, until earlier this year, when Bushnell’s 11-year-old pressed her mom to look into their genetics.
Watching a video of them together could actually make you tear up as the bond they share is quite obvious.
No one knows why they were both separated. But they were adopted separately at birth. And fortunately, both were adopted by American families. And they both lived here all their lives without knowing about each other’s existence until one of them took DNA testing and the second one’s daughter took a test around the same time.
