17 year-old student athletes Jordan and Robin met at a track meet, and noticed that they looked exactly alike.

They began to talk. And when Jordan learned Robin’s last name, Jeter, she came to an astounding realization and began to cry.

Robin was her long-lost sister.

From WUSA 9:

The sisters are together now but for so long their lives were separate.  Jordan, a junior at Wilson High School, was adopted shortly after her birth.  Robin, a senior at Friendship Collegiate, bounced around from her biological mother, to foster care, to a legal guardian.  For 17 years they lived in the same city, played some of the same sports, but never crossing paths.

“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.” And she didn’t know she had a sister until January 9th, 2013.

“I was so anxious to know more about her,” says Jordan.  “Where did she go to school, how old she was, what is she like.”

They’re a lot alike actually.  Same shoe size, same double jointed thumbs, they even sound alike.

“People can’t even tell us apart on the phone,” says Robin.  “We’re always just playing around with people on the phone.”

The girls now see each other regularly.

Together, Robin and Jordan hope to find their other siblings.
