Two sisters in Washington, D.C., met for the first time at a high school track meet earlier this year. Jordan and Robin Jeter were not aware of each other’s existence until that day.
"My team was like she looks just like you," said Jordan. The two began talking and discovered that they had the same last name. "At first I didn't know I had any siblings," said Robin. "As time went on, I only knew I had one sibling, I didn't know I had anymore."
Jordan, who was adopted soon after she was born, attends Wilson High School. She’s a junior. Robin, a senior at Friendship Collegiate, lived with her mother and in foster care before coming under the care of a legal guardian.
"I asked her what's your mother's name on your birth certificate, what's her birthday, what does your birth certificate say at the bottom," says Robin.
Jordan was a little leery of the conversation at first.
"I was like ‘What is this, an interrogation”’ she said.
That initial awkwardness is all gone at this point, The New York Daily News reported.
"Every weekend we go over each other's house," Jordan said. .
The two sisters have a lot in common. They both wear the same size shoes and have double jointed thumbs. The girls also say that friends can’t tell them apart on the phone.
Now that they’ve found each other, it doesn’t seem like they will be separated anytime soon. "It's been so long I just feel like I'll never be apart from her," says Jordan.
