Adopted soon after they were born, two men had no idea who their biological families were. On a journey to find out more about where they come from, the two made not one but multiple findings, some of which were unbelievable.

Randy Rogers grew up in Arkansas, while Lafe Jones is from Louisiana. Although they grew up in different states and had never met, they had more in common than they could have ever dreamed of.

Their [Rogers and Jones'] journey isn't over yet.

Both of them were put for adoption when they were just babies. The two became more interested in their biological origins as they got older. Through adoption papers and DNA testing, the pair found out that they are blood-related brothers.

AND SO SEARCH BEGINS

Before reuniting, both were on their own search to find out more about their biological origins. Jones was the first who took to DNA testing. However, only months later, Rogers chose to take a test as well.

Initially, he only received emails about distant family members, but he finally came across one that caught his eye. This mail revealed that he had a biological brother.

LOOKING AT THEIR OWN REFLECTIONS

After almost six decades, they decided to meet face to face and were both shocked at the resemblance when they saw one another. Jones expressed:

“I felt like I was almost looking in a mirror.”

The two have decided to spend more time together. However, beyond finding one another, these brothers still have a long road ahead, having made even more mind-blowing discoveries along the way.

MORE ASTOUNDING DISCOVERIES

Not only do they have the same mother but also the same father. Astoundingly, they also share 11 half-siblings. The brothers decided to travel to Fayetteville to meet with them. For Rogers, who grew up an only child, this was particularly touching. Their journey isn't over yet, with Jones saying:

“Our next step is we’re going to continue to investigate who our father is.”

Now reunited, these siblings are sure to catch up on 58 years lost, although they most likely feel as though they have never been apart.

ANOTHER HEARTWARMING FINDING

Just like Rogers and Jones, adoption can lead many down some of the strangest of roads. Perhaps one of the most unique cases is Ashley Thomas and Latoya Wimberly, best friends who, after nearly 20 years, found out they were sisters.

Wimberly divulged that she almost fainted when she discovered that her closest companion was her biological sibling. A DNA test was also the core reason as to how this realization came about.

Similar to the brothers, these sisters are making up for the time lost, moving towards creating an even stronger bond. Family, it seems, are never too far away, and with a little bit of searching, one can find themselves in the arms of those they thought they would never meet.
