Watch: Emotional Moment Twin Sisters Reunite After Being Separated at Birth

| Trending

There wasn't a dry eye on Good Morning America Wednesday morning when two identical twins were reunited for the first time since being separated as infants. 

Audrey Doering and Gracie Rainsberry were adopted from China by families in Wisconsin and Washington, respectively. They are now 10 years old. 

Jennifer Doering realized her daughter might have a sibling after she came across a photo of her as a baby on the lap of her foster mother alongside an identical baby. She did some research and discovered her daughter was in fact a twin. 

“As soon as I had that picture, I was desperate to find out who that other child was,” she said.

A DNA test confirmed that they were identical twins. The girls have some things in common too. 

“We both love chicken Alfredo. That’s like one of our favorite foods,”  Gracie shared. “And we both love mac ‘n’ cheese.”

They also both had to undergo surgery upon arriving in the U.S. due to a heart condition. But their story has been a happy one, especially now that they have met. 

When the two first saw each other, in matching pink blouses and black-rimmed glasses, they burst into tears and embraced. 

“It felt like there was something missing, so now it’s complete,” Audrey said.
