A pair of former classmates in Indiana who reconnected decades later on Facebook made a shocking discovery: They’re long-lost twin siblings.
Karen Warner, 51, said she found out her biological mother’s name a few years ago when Indiana unsealed adoption records, and the discovery came with a surprise: she had a twin brother.
Warner said she sought help from various adoption websites to try to find her long-lost brother.
“Everybody kept coming up with nothing because we didn’t have a name to go by or anything,” Warner told WTHR-TV.
Warner said the big break came when she obtained local voting records with a list of three men who shared her birth date.
The third name on the list, Mike Jackman, stood out because he was a high school classmate who she had only very recently reconnected with on Facebook.
Warner said Jackman a Facebook message saying they might be twin siblings, and the pair had a DNA test performed that confirmed their connection.
“It’s filled a void in my life I didn’t know was there,” Jackman said. “There was something out there, I didn’t know was there and now it’s here. She’s here.”
The siblings said they now talk almost every day and get together several times a week.
“We’re two peas in a pod,” Warner said.
