Two sisters were born in China just one year and one day apart. Records revealed that both Macha and Clements were in the same orphanage at one point for a couple of months.
Elia Macha and Joi Clements took an online DNA test to learn more about their heritage and found they had a sister. Elia Macha from Spring, Texas, just graduated from nursing school and is now celebrating with her newly found sister sitting at the table.
"I kind of knew that there was a possibility that I could find a sister just because we were adopted due to the one-child policy in China," Macha said, "but we mainly did it for health reasons just to see since I don't know my biological family."
They were born in China just one year apart. Records revealed that both Macha and Clements were in the same orphanage at one point for a couple of months. According to Clements, they were both adopted by single parents in the United States. An online DNA test kit through 23andMe would later reunite the sisters.
"We're so blessed that our story turned out so great," Macha said. "Around adoption, there is sort of mixed feelings sometimes. And so I think just taking it for whatever it is, whatever comes of it, but if you want to know more, there are definitely resources out there to do that, and we're so lucky our situation turned out so wonderful."
Clements and Macha met in person when Clements flew into the Houston area in May 2021.
