United States: colleagues and friends, they discover they are sisters

Cassandra and Julia, very close friends, had questions about their strong physical resemblance, to the point of looking for a family link.

Strong bonds of friendship that become ties of blood. Transformation (in this sense) is normally impossible, except for Julia Tinetti (31) and Cassandra Madison (32) . The two formed a friendship when they worked together at a bar in New Haven, Connecticut. 

“We started hanging out together. We went out for drinks, dinner,” said Julia Tinetti on the Good Morning America program , relayed by  Paris Match . “I thought she was cool. We hit it off right away,” added Cassandra Madison. But one thing nonetheless questioned the two young women: their strong physical resemblance. Both adopted, they decide to compare their adoption papers, especially since they each have a tattoo of the Dominican flag. 

But the result is disappointing, as the documents indicate a provenance from two different towns in the Dominican Republic, and a different mother’s name. But this is only a postponement. In 2018, Cassandra manages to locate her biological father. If she finds out that her birth mother died three years earlier, she asks her father if any other children have been abandoned. And this time around, the answer will give hope.

The couple, who were going through “a difficult time”, gave up another daughter for adoption . This time, Cassandra and Julia decide to take a DNA test and the result is as expected: they are sisters. “WE ARE SISTERS! Same mom, same dad”, then posted Cassandra on Facebook, alongside her little sister.
