Two sisters separated for 47 years got to meet recently for the first time after the older sibling found information through Ancestry.com that led her to find her sister.

April Kreppel, who is two years older than her sister Jennifer Braica, didn’t find out until she was 19 that her sister existed, ABC News reported. Braica, who was adopted at birth, was told at age 10 that she was adopted but didn’t know she had a sister until she was 27 and was able to get some details about her adoption from the state.

The sisters searched for each other for more than 20 years until Braica got on Ancestry.com. Through the site, she was able to contact distant relatives who gave her information that led to her finding Kreppel, ABC News reported. 

The sisters met at a Florida airport and spent a week together. They found out they both had lived on Long Island in New York at the same time but didn’t know it. They also found out they both sang the same song as children even though they had different families that didn’t know each other, ABC News reported. 

“Our daughters are so happy because they’ve listened to us whine about it since they were babies,” Braica said, WPBF reported. “It’s just been amazing. This has been the best week of my life.”

“Best for sure,” Kreppel agreed. 

The sisters have plans to talk every day and eventually to live near each other.

“I look at her and I feel like I’ve known her my entire life,” Braica said, WPBF reported. “She’s beautiful and she’s so much more than I ever expected. And she will never get away from me again.”
