Casework Corner: Bringing Long-Lost Sisters Together
recently received a referral from a partner in Colombia*, regarding two sisters who had been separated when they were internationally adopted by different families in the 1990s. One of the sisters remembered she had a birth sibling, and reached out to ISS-USA's partner in Colombia to find her.
ISS-USA was able to locate her sister within the United States and reached out to her to ask if she wanted to be reunited. She was overjoyed and the two have since been put in touch with each other. The sisters told ISS-USA they are thrilled to be reunited and have been waiting for this moment their entire lives.
