Twins who were separated at birth had a very emotional first meeting live on Good Morning America on Wednesday. Gracie Rainsberry and Audrey Doering, age 10, only found out that the other existed last month after Doering's adoptive mother discovered a picture of the girls together as babies in China with the help of a researcher hired to tell her more about Audrey's past. They tracked down Rainsberry's family on Facebook, and after a Skype call, the two families planned the to have the twins reunite on television. Have tissues nearby, you're going to need them.

There was not a dry eye in the house as the sisters saw each other in person for the first time where they immediately collapsed into sobs and embraced.

"It’s very overwhelming," said Gracie through her tears.

"It felt like there was somebody missing. Now it's complete," added Audrey.

A DNA test revealed that Audrey, who lives in Wisconsin, and Gracie, who resides in Washington State, are identical twins (as if you needed a test to tell you that). Gracie was adopted in July of 2007, and her sister was adopted the following month.
