When children are adopted, they are always curious about who their biological parents are. They can’t help but wonder where they came from and if they have siblings or not. Many adopted children don’t find the answer to their questions. Luckily, these two women who were adopted from South Korea discovered where they came from and even found out that they were sisters after a year of working together.

Two women worked at a hospital as nurses. One day they were scheduled for the same shift and discovered that they shared a similar experience. They were both adopted from South Korea when they were young.

Could Be Sisters?

Old Names

When they were adopted, their parents gave them American names. The women referred to their adoption documents to find their old Korean last names. They were shocked to find that they had the same Korean last name!

Shin

The girls’ last name was Shin when they lived in South Korea. This was much more than a coincidence.

Could It Be Destiny?

Biological Sisters

After talking during their shift together, the women realized that they had so much in common that it was impossible for them not to be sisters. They decided to take a DNA test to confirm their theory.

The Test

When they sat down to take the test, they were nervous to find out the results. They wanted to be related so badly. Waiting for the answer was excruciating.
