Connie never knew she had half-siblings. Her father passed away when she was very young, and one day she received a letter from the social security administration explaining that her father's benefits would be divided 4 ways. She thought they had made a mistake until her grandmother said, "Well sweety, thats because you have another brother and sister. Didn't you know that? "

After Connie's parents were divorced, her father remarried had two more children,Vickie and John. Ever since findign out about them, Connie has wanted to meet them, but could not find them. On February 14th, she received the best Valentines Day present ever! Her case was solved in 15 minutes and within two hours she was on the phone with her sister Vickie for the first time.

Vickie, was also shocked to learn that she had other siblings. In fact, when Connie introduced herself, the line went completely silent. Vickie asked who she was again, and then said, "I'm going to have to hang up and verify this information with my mother."

It was anerve-wracking wait for Connie, but Vickie called back a few minutes later and they have been building their friendship ever since. John, on the other hand, is not as open and has only been willing to correspond through email. That's the first of many family similarities because Connie's brother Tony is also hesitant to reunite.

That's not all the siblings have in common. Their father enjoyed singing and playing the guitar, and the siblings have learned that they all have rhythm and musical talent. After exchanging photos they discovered a family resemblance as well. Vickie and Connie are both devoted mothers with only one child, and they share many personal attributes and preferences. They plan to meet face to face sometime in the future, and the reunion has been very rewarding for both of them.

"There are just so many little coincidences--there's no doubt that we're sisters," Connie says. Finding her missing siblings has filled a void in her life and helped her answer many questions. "It's the best choice I've ever made."
