Later in life, as an adult, Suzy wrote her birth mother a letter that the organization in charge of her adoption claims to have forwarded.
However, when Suzy reunited with her mother years later, the woman said she never received the letter but always wanted to meet her daughter.
After finally reuniting with her mother, Suzy then embarked on a journey to find her father.
Thanks to the “My Heritage” site, Suzy was able to discover the identity of her father and get in touch with his three children in England.
After a long wait, Suzy finally met her long-lost biological siblings in a touching reunion.
After the pandemic restrictions were lifted, Suzy, her brother Steve and her sisters Eileen and Sharon, decided to meet up in Thailand for a vacation.
Suzy told Sunrise that the reunion was “amazing” and that she felt she had finally “found the missing link in her chain.”
“It was just meant to be, and it was finally real, after years of talking we finally got that first hug,” she said.
She was shocked to learn that the three siblings also had a fourth sister who died at the age of 19.
In a wild coincidence, this sister was also named Suzy, with the family describing their lost brother and the one they were just reunited with as nearly identical.
Sharon told Sunrise it was a “huge shock” when she received a call from her sister Eileen to tell her they had heard of a lost relative.
“So eventually we started phone calls, texts, emails with Suzy who said our dad was her dad,” she said.
“But I never doubted that for a second…I saw the pictures of Suzy and our sister Suzy when she was 19 when she passed away, and this picture of Suzy as she is now, c was like it was the same person.”
The siblings say that even after decades apart, they hit it off instantly and had a lot in common.
They even shared the same favorite song, “Country Road” by John Denver, which was also their father’s favorite.
“We all went in for a massage, and we came out and it was playing, Country Road,” Suzy said.
“So we looked up at the sky, it was scary.
“We all got goosebumps.”
