After twin girls were adopted from China by two different families, the pair were reunited for the first time ever on Good Morning America. 

The twins girls, ten-year-old Audrey and Gracie, burst into tears at the sight of each other and hugged. The pair wore matching pink tops and black-rimmed glasses, and sat next to each other with their families after their touching reunion. Audrey's mother Jennifer Doering revealed that she was the one who found out Audrey may have a sibling after she found a photo of the twins together as babies. Speaking about the discovery, Jennifer said: "It was unbelievable… As soon as I had that picture, I was desperate to find out who that other child was." She managed to find Gracie's mother Nicole Rainsberry through Facebook. Speaking about finding Audrey's twin, she said: "It's the craziest thing in the whole wide world to look at your child exactly. Everything was the same." Nicole said: "It was just surreal, it was hard to process that information."  


Audrey and Gracie had previously spoken through video message, but said they were "overwhelmed" to be meeting in real life. Audrey said: "It felt like there was something missing, so now it's complete." They spoke about what they had already found out about each other, with Gracie saying: "We both love chicken Alfredo. That's like one of our favourite foods. And we both love mac 'n' cheese." Viewers were quick to discuss the emotional moment, with one writing: "Thanks @GMA for that special moment. Crying now.Those beautiful little girls and those glasses," while another added: "Y'all got me all choked up before 9 am!" GMA's host Ginger Zee also spoke about the segment,tweeting: "EVERYONE IS CRYING IN THE STUDIO."
