Twins separated at birth reunited after 10 years

WAUSAU, WI (KNDU) Chinese twins, separated at birth and adopted by two different families in the United States, have finally been reunited after ten years apart.

Audrey Doering and her parents live in Wausau, Wisconsin. Her mom had wanted a man who works with parents and Chinese adoption agencies to track down her “finding ad” on his last trip to China. It’s basically a “Lost and Found” clipping in Chinese newspapers for babies.

While searching, he found the photo for the family and sent it to them on Monday, December 5th. That’s when they realized Audrey had a twin sister.

“I did not even know I had a sister at all,” said Audrey.

“Essentially from, between Monday and Wednesday, we were able to locate the Rainsberrys,” said Jennifer Doering, Audrey’s mom. “And by Friday, everybody kind of knew.”

Gracie Rainsberry and her parents live in Richland, Washington, and didn’t know that Gracie had a twin.

As for the Rainsberrys, they’ve had Gracie’s finding ad for years, but what they didn’t realize was that Audrey was right there on the same page the whole time.

What at first seemed like a normal Friday for Gracie Rainsberry, ended with her reuniting with the other half she didn’t even know she had.

“I was very overwhelmed and I started to cry,” Gracie said.
