Fate brought two adoptive families together in the most unimaginable of ways.
Two Missouri based families adopted a child each from separate two separate towns of China. But as fate would have it, the two adopted children turned out to be birth sisters.
According to USA Today, Staci and James Maneage adopted 10-year-old Elianna from a Chinese orphanage. Meanwhile, Paige and Steve Galbierz adopted 7-year-old Kinley.
Since the two families lived only three minutes of walk apart, the two girls quickly got acquainted and started growing closer to one another.
Gradually, Elianna's parents began to wonder about the striking resemblance between the two girls. Although they knew the girls had been adopted from two different cities in China, the similarities between them were too great to ignore.
Consequently, they decided to run a DNA test on the girls. "They pout the same way. Their personalities are the same," the source quoted Staci as stating.
However, the Galbierzes were not so sure about conducting the DNA test because they thought it was too much of a coincidence that the girls would be related. But as a test was harmless, they finally agreed to DNA test.
When the results came out, it revealed that there was 99.9 percent probability that the two girls are sisters.
Following the discovery, the families have come to believe that it has been some kind of divine planning that brought the two families together in an unexpected way. "This was so overwhelming for us. We really know that God has orchestrated all of this," Paige stated.
The mothers of the girls further revealed that Elianna and Kinley are quite fond of each other as they see each other a lot. The two families are happy about it and want it to be that way.
They are further discussing moving even closer to another or even sharing a plot of land, the online source suggested.
