All in the Family
Though there are thousands of online adoption support groups open to parents, Holly and Diana happened to belong to the same one. In May 2006, Diana sent a message to her support group and told the other adoptive parents that her daughter Mia was turning 3 in June. Little did she know, this message would change her life forever.
When Holly read the posting, she says she thought it was a funny coincidence because her Mia was also going to be 3 in June. Holly responded to Diana's message and said her daughter's birthday was June 13th.
Diana quickly replied. "Are you kidding?" she wrote. "My Mia's going to be turning 3 on June 12. Where was she found?"
Through a series of e-mails, the adoptive mothers realized their daughters had been abandoned at the same factory, within one week of each other. When they compared photos of the girls, they knew there was more to the story and decided to do DNA testing.
