older_sistersTheir stories are worth celebrating. People everywhere are reuniting with family and friends they haven’t seen in years, and it’s all thanks to modern technology that helps bring us together. At PeopleFinders.com we’re always excited to hear about people who were able to find each other again after so much time had passed.

Take the tale of two sisters who were separated at a very young age and spent nearly 5 decades apart. One was so young when it happened that she didn’t even remember having a sibling, but after their reunion the pair immediately established a strong sisterly bond.
