Biological Sisters Who Reunited On Facebook Hug After More Than 50 Years Apart

A pair of biological sisters who were adopted and later found each other on Facebook were finally able to share a long-awaited embrace after 55 years. In the wholesome moment, which was captured on video, Rita Smith, 60, headed outside of her Moses Lake, Washington, home to hug her long-lost sister, Lisa Wolf, who lives in Ohio. The pair's reunion was the result of decades of detective work, which Rita first started carrying out in the 1980s. She and another sister, Debbie, were adopted when they were three or four, years before Lisa was born. Debbie passed away in 2017, which caused a heartbroken Rita to intensify her search to find her remaining sister, hoping to build a new sibling bond. In 2013, Washington State opened its adoption records, allowing Lisa to order her original birth certificate. Through this, she was able to find her biological family's address and finally make contact.
