Irrefutable Similarities

When it comes to family, sometimes there are irrefutable similarities.

Vanessa (Scalf) Dalton was adopted by loving parents when she was just six days old. Now, many years later, she has been reunited with her biological mother, whom she’s been searching for. And in the process, she found a few siblings as well.

“That’s been weirder than anything because I always thought about my birth mother but didn’t think about siblings. We get along well, have the same mannerisms, like the same foods, have the same thought processes.”

Among the similarities Vanessa has noticed include things like hand gestures, facial expressions, and a love of mustard. Vanessa stated that she has nearly ten jars in her fridge of the stuff,  and that “Karen and Jessica are the same way.”
