Two girls, fraternal twins, were separated, then abandoned a week apart on the same spot on a sidewalk in China.
The Funk family in Illinois adopted one and named her Mia; a year later, the Ramirez family in Florida adopted the other and named her Mia.
Thanks to a website and DNA tests, the two adopted girls, twins, met for the first time.
Separated at birth, united by chance
The girls, whose parents had dressed them identically in Chinese-themed outfits, shyly surveyed each other. Urged a little closer, they finally reached for each other's hand.
"I'm just awed," Holly Funk said as she looked at the tiny girls, a little island in the flow of travelers crowding the luggage claim area. "Grateful to God. To me, it's a divine thing. It's a miracle. In the sea of humanity, these kids found each other."
