Sisters Meet For The First Time In Their 70's

Annie Ljpelaar and Sheila Anne Fry were put up for adoption at the end of WWII in 1946. Their teenage father was a Canadian soldier in the UK for the war,

Annie ended up going to the Netherlands with her new family and Sheila stayed in the UK. Both women didn’t know about the bio families and had been trying to get answers for years. That’s where Sheila’s daughter-in-law, Karen and Annie’s son, Marc come in.

Marc reached out to Karen after finding out through his DNA test that they were related.

A meeting was arranged and Sheila says “We have the same hobbies, and the same medical complaints—it is very strange.” The both agree seeing each other is like looking in the mirror.

Here's a video of their reunion.

The two will have a hard time communicating since both have difficulties with technology, but they’ll make it work.
