Two sisters who were abandoned at an orphanage in 1948 have been reunited.

Karen and Anne Simpton were reunited at Karen’s home Auburn, just outside of Sacramento, after reuniting on Facebook, KCRA reports. The sisters’ emotional reunion came 66 years after being abandoned at an orphanage with their three other siblings at an orphanage in Portland.
