    1. Thank you! this story is so incredible, the social media can really do miracles. Such a beautiful love story 🙂 I guess you lost the bet too and I don’t owe you the box of beers ? 😉

    1. They are actually! the moment they discovered the positive results of the DNA test really gave me goosebumps. Glad you liked the story too 🙂 Have a lovely week end!

  1. Wow this is incredible! For as much as I sometimes think the internet has caused problems in the world, this is a case to say it has been beneficial! How amazing… Same face , same family but different languages and cultures… Very cool story. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    1. It is such an incredible story, and definitely a tribute to social media. Although as my Buddhist friends would say, it was their karma to be reunited again, they would have found a way 😉 Still, sometimes it feels very good to live in the 21st century and feel that the world is at your finger tips, that you don’t need to brave all the elements to travel the world.. Have a beautiful WE, Shiny hugs from the Philippines my dear !

      1. I like the idea of karma bringing them together:) I hope one day you and I can also meet!!! We will feast on eggplant parmigiana and espresso….
