Long-lost family meets for the first time

News

(WTHR) – A woman who was put up for adoption when she was 10-years-old has reunited with two sisters and a brother she didn’t know she had. 

Alicia Bronson, 60, had always wanted to know who her biological mother was, but never found the answers she was looking for. That was, until last July, when an Indiana law opened up adoption records that had previously been sealed. Bronson sent off the proper paperwork, and waited for her records to be released. 

Last Monday, she learned her mom’s name. By Wednesday, she had the names of her siblings, thanks to an online community that helps adopted people search for family members. When Bronson put one of her sister’s names into Facebook, she found out they shared a friend.

“I called that person and said, ‘I need you to do me a favor,'” said Bronson.

Not an hour later, Bronson was talking on the phone with her little brother. That same night, Bronson met her younger siblings in a tearful, joyful reunion in Indianapolis, Indiana.
