The twins were finally able to reunite after living apart for 81 years after being separated when their parents died and not seeing each other again until the age of nine.
The New York Post reported that Morelia Chavez and Andrea Lopez (90 years old) met again last December after taking a DNA test.
“It was as if I was seeing her for the first time in my life because 81 years is a very long time. I remember her a little,” Andrea Lopez said.
Both women were only 5 years old when their parents died, and the family of 10 was scattered among relatives.
Ms. Lopez, who lives in Las Vegas, had traveled to Denver when DNA testing revealed their relationship.
“Little sister, I really wanted to see you, and be with me, my beautiful little sister,” Ms. Lopez said to her sister when they met.
“I never thought [re]“See, never,” Ms. Chavez admitted.
The last time they saw each other at a family reunion, the twins were 9 years old.
During their reunion, the two women spent their time reminiscing about childhood memories, until Ms. Lopez returned to Nevada.
The twins have since discovered that three of their siblings are still alive and are between 80 and 90 years old.
