Ancestory.com has been making headlines lately. The popular genealogy service—the largest company of its kind—helps people discover their roots and has reunited biological family members.
One such woman is Albreanna (@Albreanna89 on Twitter with a handle of Kitty). Adopted at birth, she never knew her biological family—only her parents' ethnicities. But thanks to Ancestory.com and one persistent brother, all that has changed.
Here's her story via a Twitter thread:
I found my biological family. I’m a daughter. I’m a sister. I’m an aunt. I’m a granddaughter. Bitch I’m a relative!!! A thread...— albreannafindme (@Albreanna89) July 8, 2018
The reunited siblings wanted Albreanna to meet her mom. So they flew their mom out as a surprise. She didn't know Albreanna had been found until they arrived at the airport.
Watch that part of the story unfold:
Here's a clip of Albrianna right before meeting her mom for the very first time.
Understandably nervous, she is a cocktail of emotions:
