Everyone, adopted or not, need to look around and start asking questions about everyone they meet. It seems that more and more parents have not been forthcoming about information from their past.
Two Washington, D.C. teenagers, Robin and Jordan, have been going to school 10 minutes from each other, yet have never known that they were sisters. For 17 years, the girls have been separated and unaware that the other existed. Jordan had been put up for adoption, yet she knew her biological mother’s last name, Jeter. Robin bounced around from her mother to foster care and ended up with a legal guardian.
One of Jordan’s track team members at Wilson High School told her that there was a girl on the Friendship Collegiate team that looked exactly like her.
“I was so anxious to know more about her,” Jordan, 17, told WUSA 9. “Where did she go to school, how old she was, what is she like.”
It turns out that they are sisters and are only nine months apart. They spoke briefly at the track meet, but they got along instantly. They are getting to know one another and are interested in finding out if they have more siblings. Robin said that she knew she had a brother, but never knew about Jordan.
The girls look like twins, but they also look like Jada Pinkett-Smith. They better find out if they’re related to her. Jada Pinkett grew up in Baltimore which is a mere 35 miles away. Worth a try!
Check out their story. Beautiful!
