Averne was adopted as an infant and raised as an only child. But in first grade, she found out that she had six siblings who went to live with different families after her birth parents split up. "I was very curious about my brother and sisters and couldn't wait to meet them. I started searching in high school but didn't find anything," she said in the r/Adoption subreddit. "I decided to search again in college, but they found me first. It took me 10 years and all seven of us 15 years to finally get all of us together in the same place at once."
