Transcript for Two Sisters Reunited After 50 Years
Finally tonight, two strangers both abandoned at birth turn to the internet hoping to find someone who might be a part of their past. In connecting the dots, the surprise of their lives. Here's ABC with their story. We have big noses, cheeks, dimples. Two sisters who today can finish each other's sentences. And we smile a lot. We smile a lot and we laugh a lot. But not because they spent any time growing up together. In fact, tammy was abandoned by their parents as an infant. A newspaper told the story at the time. Inside the box wrapped in a blanket was found a baby girl only a few days old. Remarkably, 4 years later, a second infant girl was born and abandoned by the same parents. Abandoned baby found in good condition. He discovered the baby just inside the door of the laundry room. Reporter: Both girls were adopted by local families. 50 years and a lifetime goes by. And then the internet. Liz sent her DNA to an online testing service. Tammy went on ancestry.com, and many connections later, they found each other. We just had had that connection almost like twins. Reporter: But one other connection from that newspaper story, the night that Liz was found. She was wrapped in two new receiving blankets, a new kymono and training pants, according to patrolman George Jansen. Well, now George Jansen is back in the picture, too. You're a lot bigger than the last time I saw you. Just the other day in the same dawnry room where he found Liz. This time with flowers to celebrate. There are times we call each other and it was like did that really just happen? Yes, it did. And it's just really starting. I do see a family resemblance. Reporter: ABC news, Washington. They do look alike. We thank John for that story. Meet us right back here tomorrow night. I'm Tom llamas in New York. Have a great night. Good night.
