Kicker – An unexpected family connection

NICK EICHER, HOST: Two women who discovered they had a lot more in common than they initially thought recently shared their story in a video that’s gone viral.

Cassandra Madison and Julia Tinetti met at a pub in Connecticut where the two of them worked. They became fast friends—both of them having been adopted, both of them coming from the Dominican Republic. 

But a mutual friend had a hunch about something further. As she explained to TV station KMVT: 

FRIEND: I started with Cassie, I met Julia, and I looked at the both of them and I was like you two look alike. Are you guys sisters? She was like, no, we’re not.

Ah, but not so fast. Customers couldn’t tell them apart—kept confusing the two women. So they relented and figured, you know, let’s get the DNA test. Cassandra has the results.

CASSANDRA: We’re sisters!

REICHARD: But that doesn’t mean you  can borrow my stuff.

Hey, fake news. She didn’t say that!

It’s The World and Everything in It.
