Adopted and Reunited with Biological Sister

A woman whose unmarried mother gave her up for adoption when she was only 3 months old found her lost sister after 50 years. The interesting part of this story is that adoptee LeiAloha Fowler 66, had spent almost 50 years looking for her birth mother but instead her search led to her younger sister.

Fowler never knew that she has a younger sister also. Fowler's younger sister Holcomb was born two years after her mother Alice Correia had given her for adoption and then got married.

The two women were breathless when they finally hugged each other at Holcomb's Sacramento home. Fowler, 66, had come from Kansas to see her.

The younger sister unlike Fowler, knew that she had an older sister also. She came to know about this when she had seen her own birth certificate. Since no other details such as name were given therefore she was unable to search her older sidter.

Fowler started the search for her mother when she was just 8 years old. this was the first time she came to know that she is aa adoptee. I tried to get the information from whereever I could,but no body knew anything or never wanted to tell me. I always missed something in my life and that was my mother.

In March 2011, she somehow got her mothers death certificate who had died in 1993. On the death certificate she found the phone number of her younger sister. Fowler called her younger sister who already knew that she had an older sister.

This phone call came not only as a surprise but also brought tears of joys for both the sisters.

The younger sister said "I was shocked . I was taken aback. I said you've got to be kidding me." and the older says "Since then, we've been burning up the phone line."

They were finally united this Thursday.

Interestingly both lived and grew up in Hawai. Fowler is Polynesian dancer and worked with Elvis presley in two films,
