[NEW ARRIVALS] Separated @ Birth: A True Love Story of
AUTHORS: Anais Bordier, Samantha Futerman
Imagine one day opening Facebook and reading a message from a stranger that says, “I think we might be twins …don’t freak out …”
It all began when design student Anais Bordier viewed a YouTube video and saw her own face staring back. After some research, Anais found that the Los Angeles actress Samantha Futerman was born in Korean port city Busan on Nov. 19, 1987 - the exact same location and day that Anais was born.
This propelled her to make contact - via Facebook. One message later, both girls wondered: Could they be twins?
Thus begins their remarkable journey to build a relationship as sisters, continents apart. Over Facebook, Twitter and Skype, they learned that they shared much more than a strikingly similar appearance. Eventually, they traveled to Korea together to discover more about the land of their separation. One of Facebook’s Top Ten Stories of 2013, Separated @ Birth is a story that spans the world and peels back some of the complex and emotional layers of foreign adoption.
