Five years ago, Samantha Wernet began searching for her birth family. Finally, she signed up for an account on Adoption.com’s Reunion Registry. “You put in your name and as much information as you know,” she explained. “It gave me a match and that’s when I found all of them. I found out I wasn’t an only child. I had many siblings. And an older brother! I’d ALWAYS wanted an older brother.”
“You’re stuck with me now,” joked her smiling brother, Jason Vawter. The two were able to meet in person for the first time and are enjoying getting to know one another.
