Were you ever one of those girls who wondered if youâ€™d ever find your long lost sister at a random outing, like Tia and Tamera did in â€œSister Sisterâ€? Well, life imitated art back in January when 17 year old sisters Jordan and Robin Jeter met each other at a track meet.
In an interview with Washington D.C.â€™s CBS affiliate, WUSA9, the girls described their encounter.
â€œMy team was like she looks just like you,â€ said Jordan. Â The two talked briefly at the meet and once Jordan found out Robinâ€™s last name was Jeter she started crying.
Jordan, the girl on the right, was put up for adoption shortly after her birth while Robin stayed with her biological before being sent to foster care and then to a legal guardian. Jordan, is a junior and Robin is a senior. The girls attended schools just ten minutes away from one another and played the same sports but never crossed paths.
Their chance meeting almost didnâ€™t happen. Jordan only joined the track team as a way to stay in shape.
Though they look and sound just alike, the two are not twins. They were born within 9 months of each other. Robin, the girl on the left, says initially she didnâ€™t know she had siblings. As time went on she knew she had one but never knew she had a sister.
