Emotional Moment Woman Finally Hugs Biological Brother For First Time

An adopted woman was brought to tears when, for the first time, she was able to hug her biological brother who had lost all hope of ever finding her. Lena Kauffman, 27, from San Francisco, California, always knew that she had siblings but was never able to find them through traditional methods of searching. Similarly, her brother, Frankie, 28, had searched to find his long-lost sibling for 10 years but eventually gave up believing he would succeed. That changed last year, though, when the website 23andMe matched Lena with her first cousin. She decided to reach out in July and was informed that she, in fact, had six half-brothers on her father's side, with Frankie being closest to her in age. After chatting on FaceTime, Frankie and Lena had an immediate connection, and so they decided to meet in person to discuss their pasts. On July 29, the pair met at Harris Ranch, a California restaurant Lena has been visiting for years.
